RiverNET is the leading software that incorporates HEC-RAS and HEC-2 in AutoCAD. It includes a range of features and capabilities that automates HEC-RAS modeling tasks. Automatic cross section cutting, mapping of roughness values and bank station locations, floodplain mapping, floodway determination, bridges, culverts, and more. RiverNET is used by over 2,500 organizations worldwide.

FHWA DOT Bridge Scour Calculations, Analysis, and Reporting

Our software development team worked with several major engineering companies involved in FHWA and DOT bridge replacement contracts to completely automate the FHWA HEC 18 bridge scour calculations and analysis, design, and reporting necessary for bridge replacement and armoring projects. RiverNET will analyze a bridge for scour and create a “ready-to-submit” FHWA-accepted bridge scour engineering report in just minutes. The scour report includes all input data, equations, variables, intermediate results, final analysis results, and analysis narrative—along with placing the computed scour results directly on the bridge within the AutoCAD drawing.

RiverNET’s bridge scour calculations and analysis can account for:

  • Contraction scour
  • Pier scour
  • Bridge abutment scour
  • Bridge skew
  • Pier skew
  • Pier shape
  • Sloping and skewed abutments
  • Soil bed material
  • Armoring of bridge abutments
  • Armoring of bridge piers
  • US, metric, or mixed unit-based input data
