Well it’s been one year since I published “Breaking the HEC-RAS Code”. It was a lot of work, but I am very pleased to see how many people are making use of the book controlling and automating HEC-RAS with their own codes.
For those of you who haven’t discovered it yet, this book introduces the HECRASController, an API that gives you the ability to control HEC-RAS from an external application. If you have HEC-RAS installed on your computer, you already have the HECRASController! The book is written around Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), since most HEC-RAS users have Excel and many are already at least somewhat familiar with the VBA programming language embedded within. However, many readers of my book have expanded the concepts presented to other programming codes like Python, R, C#, Matlab, etc with great success.
“Breaking the HEC-RAS Code” unlocks the secrets to using the HECRASController. If you would like more information about this book, or the companion Excel workbook that contains code written for every HECRASController procedure plus example code for a variety of applications, follow the link below or shoot me an email.
Breaking the HEC-RAS Code
For those of you already making use of the HECRASController, let me suggest visiting The RAS Solution forum and posting examples and/or questions about your experience to the HECRAS Controller sub-forum. Good luck breaking the HEC-RAS code!

The following article written by Mr. David Markwood of AECOM provides an excellent summary of the latest beta (candidate) version of HEC-RAS 5.0. Well worth the read!
