U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration

Resource:

(DOT, FHWA) FHWA Hydraulic Documents

Overview:

A series of hydraulic guides on flood related topics, including:

  • HDS 2-Highway Hydrology: Provides information on hydrologic approaches, methods, and assumptions applied in design and analysis of highway drainage structures.
  • HDS 4-Introduction to Highway Hydraulics: Provides an introduction to highway hydraulic and hydrologic techniques, such as fundamental hydraulic concepts, open channel flow principles and design applications, closed conduit principles and design applications, and an overview of energy dissipaters.
  • HDS 7-Hydraulic Design of Safe Bridges: Provides technical information and guidance on the hydraulic analysis and design of bridges, with consideration of safety, optimization of costs, and limiting impacts to property and the environment.
  • HEC 17-Highways in the River Environment-Floodplains, Extreme Events, Risk and Resilience: Provides technical guidance and methodologies on how to consider/incorporate floodplain management, risk, extreme events, resilience, and adaptation considerations when addressing highway planning and design within the riverine environment.
  • HEC 25-Highways in a Coastal Environment Vol. 1: Provides guidance for the analysis, planning, design, and operation of highways in the coastal environment. The focus is on roads potentially impacted by coastal tides and waves during storm events.
  • HEC 25-Highways in a Coastal Environment Vol. 2: Provides methods for assessing the vulnerability of coastal transportation facilities to extreme events and climate change
