Abstract:

The NexGen project, a five year project begun in 1990, is developing successor software packages to the existing family of HEC hydrologic engineering computer programs. The project is being accomplished through a management process that employs teams comprised of technical specialists, computer scientists, and consultants. Modern software engineer methods of requirements analysis, prototype development, field testing, and feedback, are employed. Object-oriented program architecture implemented with C and advanced data features of FORTRAN 90 are being used. Prototype models of NexGen software packages in catchment and river analysis are now operational and beta-test versions will be completed at the end of this next year. Final packages are expected to be completed on schedule. The packages will be functional for RISC- chip and Intel-chip based desktop computers.
