Purpose of cHECk-RAS

cHECk-RAS is a program designed to check the reasonableness of input and output data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) Hydrologic Engineering Center, River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) program. HEC-RAS input and output data are used by cHECk-RAS to verify that hydraulic estimates and assumptions made in a HEC-RAS model are justified and in accordance with the assumptions and limitations of the HEC-RAS program and applicable FEMA requirements.

While the purpose of cHECk-RAS is to facilitate the production of more accurate HEC-RAS models, the program is not intended to be a replacement for engineering judgment. cHECk-RAS only flags areas of potential error or concern, and the user must determine if modifications to the HEC-RAS model are warranted.
