For more than a decade various divisions and district offices of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been active in the development of graphic information system databases and computer aided design applications. In the Sacramento District, Hydraulic Design Section (HDS), one of the focuses in this activity has been on the use of digital terrain models to solve hydraulic design problems. One recent application of this new technology by the HDS was in the design of a flood bypass channel for an oxbow in the Napa River using a two-dimensional hydrodynamic river model operating on a computer graphics system.
