Development of the hydrological model for the Sava River basin and hydraulic model for the Sava River
The hydrological model was developed using the industry-standard software HEC-HMS, HEC-GeoHMS, and HEC-DSSVue. The main goal of the Sava HEC-HMS model is to produce discharge hydrographs throughout the Sava River basin so the hydrographs can be coupled with and imported into the hydraulic model. However, the applications of the hydrologic model are numerous including incorporation into the Sava Flood Forecasting and Warning System, flood risk management planning, water supply and drought contingency planning, and climate change studies.
The Sava River unsteady flow HEC-RAS hydraulic model includes the Sava River (main river), from the border between Slovenia and Croatia up to Belgrade and the major tributaries up to the Sava River backwaters and more. The Sava HEC-RAS is coupled with the Sava HEC-HMS model which output locations match the (lateral) inflow points of the HEC-RAS model. Model is incorporated into the Sava Flood Forecasting and Warning System
