The Hydrologic Engineering Center's Flood Impact Analysis (HEC-FIA) software, Version 3.1 (provisional), is
now available. HEC-FIA is a tool intended to support the evaluation of consequences of flood events. This
incremental release of HEC-FIA adds two features:
- Flood Damages Reduced
Along with these new features, several minor bugs and enhancements were added to the software. HEC-FIA is supported in CWMS, HEC-RTS, and HEC-WAT to add consequence assessment to each of those packages.
Relevant applications of HEC-FIA Version 3.1 include:
- Describing the life loss potential to support the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Dam and Levee Safety programs
- Calculating consequences in real time to support CWMS (Corps Water Management System)
- Computing damage frequency curves with uncertainty in HEC-WAT (Watershed Analysis Tool) with the FRA (flood risk analysis) compute option
- Supporting calculations for the OSE (Other Social Effects) account for feasibility studies
The HEC-FIA 3.1 software package and user's guide are available on this web page. Please join the discussion about HEC-FIA on our discourse page.
