  1. Finally ... These last days I was beginning to despair

  2. Hello Stephane and Chris ;-) I will test it with my current embankment breach project

  3. I have noticed that I am unable to run any HEC-RAS version beyond 4.1 (all of the beta versions as well as this version 5.0) when I have FLO-2D installed on the same computer. When running HEC-RAS, this error occurs, "HEC-RAS cannot start because there are hdf5 libraries in your Windows system folder(s). It is poor practice to copy application libraries into the system folder because of the order that Windows loads libraries used by programs. Delete hdf5*.dll files from:

    C:\Windows\system32\
    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
    And then start HEC-RAS again.

    HEC-RAS will now exit."

    If I follow these instructions, RAS will work but FLO-2D will not.
    Currently our solution is to run one software on the main computer and run the other on a virtual machine.

  5. Nice stuff! Thank you for the post.
    I have a quick question - We should have depth-vs-time graphs everywhere within a rain-on-grid 2D domain area, even few millimetres, but why there are many points we just have ZERO depth graphs?

    1. Not sure. I haven't tested that yet.

    2. Just found the answer. Go to RAS Mapper/Tools/Render Mode Options, then select Horizontal (As computed), set Plot Tolerance to zero, we can see the water everywhere in the 2D domain!

    1. Yes. A few new items, but mostly bug fixes and an improvement to the full momentum solver for 2D.

  9. When I open up the geometric data editor it now has a grid of numbers completely covering the model extents, and I can't figure out how to turn the numbers off. I turned everything off in View Options and that didn't do it. Any thoughts; what am I missing?

    1. Could it be a map layer in the background images? Other than that and the view options, not sure why that is happening. Do you know what the numbers represent?

    2. It appears to be associated with the terrain, but I have been working with this same terrain and project for months with no similar problem.

  10. Hello Chris, can I install this 5.0 final along with the previous beta or 4.1 in the same drive C?
    Thanks for answering and have a good day!

    1. Yes. I have 4.1 and 5.0 on my computer. Both work. I think you can even have the beta version on there with 5.0.

  11. Are there issues with installing on Windows 10 Pro? Thanks!

    1. I don't know of anything specific. But what I do know is that HEC did not test RAS 5.0 with Windows 10. So there are likely to be some quirks, at the least.

    2. HECRAS 5 work fine on my Windows 10 Home

    3. I've installed it onto my Windows 10 Pro machine, and haven't found any issues so far.
