Project Summary

DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF HEC-FDA SOFTWARE

This project involved the development of a design document for the next generation of the HEC-FDA (Flood Damage Analysis) software tool. The design document incorporates suggestions and research items discussed during a two previous workshops. It also accommodates those recommendations that the Corps concurred with from the National Research Council (2000) report on the Corps implementation of risk analysis for flood damage reduction, and it will aide in implementing the Chief of Engineers' "Actions for Change." This new tool may include event sampling, the ability to do scenarios analysis, structure-by-structure analysis, cost analysis and agricultural damage analysis.
