  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0

    HEC RAS: Design Note 1 Exporting a Civil 3D surface to HEC RAS.

    The following document will instruct the user how to export a Civil 3D surface to HEC RAS.

    This document is intended for use by USDA NRCS employees who work with AutoCAD Civil 3D and HEC-RAS when designing engineering practices.

    This document presumes the user is familiar with basic operation of the following software; Windows OS, Microsoft Office, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and HEC RAS and can develop a surface using AutoCAD Civil 3D and run a steady or unsteady flow analysis in HEC RAS. This document also presumes the user is using Windows OS 7, Microsoft Office 2010, AutoCAD 2010 Civil 3D 2011, and HEC RAS 4.1.0. Software used in this document is CCE approved at the time of writing and any future updates may change the processes used in this document.

    When the instructions say to click, this means to use the left mouse button. The instructions will distinguish when the right mouse button or wheel are to be used.

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 Prepare Surface for Exporting The following instructions presume that a surface has already been created in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

    For these instructions, the example project will be called Juniper. The same surface will be used throughout the example. The following is an image of the Juniper surface to be used in this example.

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 Define Alignment for the Stream Centerline The first thing needed is to find an alignment for the stream center line. In order to do this, create a polyline that begins at the downstream end and finishes at the upstream end of the portion of the stream in question.

    IMPORTANT! The polyline must be created beginning with the downstream end and finishing at the upstream end.

    STEP 1; Click on the polyline icon to begin a polyline (or type the pline command).

    STEP 2; Draw the polyline from the downstream end, to the upstream end of the section of stream to be analyzed.

    Note: the polyline is drawn at the thalweg of the stream. Be as detailed as is appropriate for the project and design.

    START -DOWNSTREAM

    FINISH -UPSTREAM

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 STEP 3; Select the Home option on the ribbon tab, then select Alignment, and then select Create Alignment from Objects (or type the CreateAlignmentEntities command).

    Choose the polyline that was just created by clicking on it, and then press [Enter] twice. The first time is to accept the selection, and the second is to accept the alignment direction.

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 The following dialog box will appear.

    STEP 4; Enter a name for the alignment. In this example, JuniperCL will be used.

    STEP 5; Uncheck the box next to Add curves between tangents. The centerline needs to be left as drawn without curves.

    STEP 4

    STEP 5

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 The dialog box should now look similar to the following image.

    STEP 6; Click on Ok.

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 The alignment has been created and should look similar to the following image.

    Note which direction the stations increase. If the stations increase from downstream to upstream, then the alignment is ready for the next process. If not, reverse the direction of the alignment so that the downstream end begins with station 0+00.

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 Create Cross Sections Next, create cross section polylines to be exported into HEC RAS.

    It doesnt matter if they are created left-to-right or right-to-left, Civil 3D will export them all in the same direction when exporting.

    STEP 1; Click on the polyline icon to begin a polyline (or type the pline command).

    STEP 2; Draw the polylines across the channel and alignment centerline, either from left-to-right or right-to-left at the desired channel cross section locations.

    HINT: Draw the cross section polylines perpendicular to the conveyance as is typical for a HEC RAS analysis.

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 STEP 3; Select the Home option on the ribbon tab, then select Sample Lines.

    In the command line it says Select an alignment .

    STEP 4; Press [Enter].

    The following dialog box will appear.

    STEP 5; Click on the created alignment, JuniperCL.

    STEP 6; Click on OK.

    STEP 5

    STEP 6

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 The following dialog boxes will appear.

    STEP 7; Enter a name for the Sample Line Group. In this example JuniperXS, for Juniper cross sections, will be used.

    STEP 8; Click on OK.

    The following editor box for Sample Line Tools will appear.

    STEP 9; Click on the dropdown arrow next to the At a Station symbol and click on Select existing polylines.

    STEP 7

    STEP 8

    STEP 9

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 STEP 10; Draw a box around the polylines as shown in the following image and press [Enter].

    All of these cross sections are now sample lines for the streams centerline alignment.

    Everything is now completed in order to export to a HEC RAS file.

    Optionally, create alignments or draw polylines to represent left and/or right stream banks.

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 Create Out-of-Bank Polylines This process will create polylines to represent the right and left out-of-bank locations. These lines will be imported into HEC RAS as the right and left river banks.

    STEP 1; Click on the polyline icon to begin a polyline (or type the pline command).

    STEP 2; Draw the polylines either from downstream-to-upstream or upstream-to-downstream at the desired overbank locations parallel to the alignment centerline.

    HINT: Draw the overbank polylines parallel to the conveyance as is typical for a HEC RAS analysis.

  • September 2, 2014 HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 Export of data This process will place all the information previously developed and place it into a single file to be used by HEC RAS.

    STEP 1; Select the Output option on the ribbon tab, then select Export to HEC RAS (or type the ExportHecRas command).

    The following dialog box will appear.

    STEP 2; Click on the dropdown arrow next to Surface and choose the surface that will be used for the cross section data. In this example, Ognd (1) was used.

    STEP 3; Click on the dropdown arrow next to Site and choose .

    STEP 4; If the Reach alignment box has not changed to the previously created alignment, click on the dropdown arrow next to Reach alignment and choose the alignment that will be used for the cross section data. In this example, JuniperCL was used.

    STEP 3

    STEP 2

  • HEC RAS: DESIGN NOTE 1 VER. 1.0 September 2, 2014 STEP 5; If the Sample line groups box has not changed to the previously created sample line group, click on the dropdown arrow next to Sample line groups and choose the sample line group that will be used for the cross section data. In this example, JuniperXS was used.

    STEP 6; Name the river. Give the river a name that meets the naming conventions in HEC-RAS. This River name will be the identifier used in HEC-RAS.

    STEP 7; Check the box for River Banks. Check the Left box, and then choose the polyline for the left overbank. This is the left overbank as looking upstream. Check the Right box, and then choose the polyline for the right overbank. This is the right overbank as looking upstream.

    The dialog box should now look similar to the following image.

    STEP 8; Click on Export.
