Abstract:

Computer program HEC-6, Scour and Deposition in Rivers and Reservoirs is a one dimensional steady state simulation model designed to analyze long-termed scour and deposition in rivers and reservoirs. The program considers the interactions between water and suspended sediment, the sediment material in the bed and the hydraulics of the flow. Procedures for calibrating and applying HEC-6 to river and reservoir sediment studies are discussed. Some of the topics discussed include development of representative geometric and hydrologic data preparation of sediment data and methods of verifying numerical results. This document is intended to be used as a supplement to the HEC-6 Users Manual. Author
