The documentation for HEC-RAS consists of a User's Manual which describes how to use the interface; a Hydraulic Reference Manual which describes the data required, equations used, solution techniques, and modeling advice; and an Applications Guide which contains seventeen example applications of using various aspects of HEC-RAS. All three documents are in PDF format and can be viewed online or downloaded. To view online or download individual chapters, go to the manual's individual page with the links below.

The HEC-RAS documentation is automatically installed during the setup of the program and can be accessed through the Help menu. To view the documentation without installing the program, you may use the links below. See the What's New page for the current release notes listing the bug fixes for this and previous releases.
