While developing a 1D/2D model in HEC-RAS, one of the most tedious steps is the definition of Lateral Structures to link the 1D model with the 2D model. The program RAS_Lateral_Structures, developed in VBA Excel using HEC-RAS API, simplifies and speeds up lateral structures data entry.
Once the user defines the position of the Lateral Structure, the Station/Elevation data is taken from the corresponding Cross Sections overlapping along the Structure length.
There is no limit in the number of Lateral Structures the user can define. The tool creates a new geometry and add it into the project.
