Diversion Data...

HEC-1 allows flow to be diverted from an outlet or drainage basin. This flow can be thought of as leaving the normal drainage system at that point. It can be retrieved at a downstream outlet where the diverted flow then contributes to the flow at that outlet. If no downstream retrieval outlet point is specified, the flow simply leaves the system at the diverted outlet point and never returns.

Editing Diversion Data (DT)

Diversions are created using a combination of the Add | Diversion and Retrieve Diversion commands found in the Tree menu. Once created, data for the diversion can be defined and/or edited by selecting the Diversion Data button from the Edit HEC-1 Parameters dialog.

The following data should be defined for a diversion:

  • Name – The name identification string of the diversion as used on the DT record. It is important to assign a unique name to each diversion in a given model because this name is used by WMS and by HEC-1 to identify the diversion.
  • Max Volume – Maximum volume of diverted flow in acre-feet (1000 cu m).
  • Peak Flow – Peak flow that can be diverted in any computation period in cfs (cms).
  • Outflow name – Name used on KK record where flow is diverted.
  • Inflow name – Name used on KK record where flow is retrieved.
  • The flow capacity of a stream flow diversion is specified using an inflow (DI) and outflow (DQ) tables. These tables are defined with the XY Series Editor by clicking on their respective define buttons.

Output Control...

For each hydrograph station (basin hydrographs, combined hydrographs, and routed hydrographs) different output controls can be specified. This dialog is accessed by selecting the Output Control dialog button from the Edit HEC-1 Parameters dialog. Entries which can be defined in this dialog are described below.

Routed and Combined Hydrographs at Outlets

In WMS an outlet point is used to represent locations where hydrographs are both combined and then routed. Therefore, if an outlet is selected before choosing the Output Control dialog, a radio group at the top of the dialog appears to specify whether the options should be applied to the combined or routed hydrograph. If a basin is selected the radio group at the top of the dialog does not appear.

Comment Lines (KM)

Individual comments can be defined for each hydrograph station. These comments can be used to identify unique characteristics about a particular basin or outlet point. A new comment can be defined by selecting the new button in the Output Control dialog and then entering the comment in the text entry. When more than one comment card has been defined, the up and down arrow buttons can be used to scroll through the list of comments for that hydrograph station. When using WMS, comment cards always appear directly after the KK cards for each hydrograph station.

Output Control (KO)

These controls determine what information about a given hydrograph station is written to the HEC-1 ASCII output file. By default the IO record information is used. However, it may be desirable to print out a more (or less) complete summary for individual hydrograph stations.

By default, the option to write a hydrograph to the TAPE22 file is specified. This is the file read by WMS for display of hydrographs. Therefore, this option should only be changed to suppress particular hydrographs.
