The Hydrologic Engineering Center's (HEC) Flood Impact Analysis (HEC-FIA) software is a tool to help identify the
consequences from a single event. HEC-FIA was developed by HEC in collaboration with the Risk Management
Center (RMC) and the Engineering Research and Design Center (ERDC). HEC-FIA evaluates consequences from
events defined by hydraulic model output such as gridded data (e.g., depth and arrival time Grids) or HEC's Data
Storage System (HEC-DSS) Stage Hydrographs. The consequences HEC-FIA computes include economic losses
(losses to structures and their contents), agricultural losses, and expected life loss from these hydraulic events.
HEC-FIA is available in two versions, HEC-FIA 2.2 which has been certified by the Flood Risk Management
Planning Center of Expertise (FRM PCX), and HEC-FIA 3.0 (provisional) is the newest version available (in the
process of being certified by the FRM PCX). Based on the needs of the project, select the proper version and
details about the verison of HEC-FIA will be provided.
