Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit Command

In GeoHECHMS, after computing the subbasin TOC data using the Subbasin TOC Data command, the Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit command allows the user to view the entire subbasin TOC data in one editable data grid table.

Follow the below steps to use the Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit command:

  1. From the Input ribbon menu, click the Drainage Subbasins dropdown menu and then select the Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit command.

  2. The Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit dialog box will be displayed.

The following sections describe the Subbasin TOC Data Table Edit dialog box.

Subbasin TOC Data Table

The following data entries are provided in the Subbasin TOC Data editable data grid table.

Subbasin ID

This data grid column lists the subbasins sorted in alphanumerical order. The user can use the filter option from the column header to limit the subbasins displayed in the data grid.

TOC Segment

This data grid column sequentially numbers the TOC segment from most upstream to most downstream segments.

Runoff Flow Type

This data grid column dropdown combo box entry lists the available runoff flow types, as listed below.

  • Sheet Flow
  • Shallow Concentrated Flow (default for newly inserted rows)
  • Channel Flow

Flow Length

This data grid column entry represents the length of the TOC segment. Clicking the […] button under this column causes the dialog box to temporarily disappear, allowing the user to measure the flow path segment length from the Map View.

Slope

This data grid column entry represents the slope of the TOC segment. If the user has specified a Terrain elevation surface, then the user can measure the Flow Length from the Map View and the software will automatically compute the TOC segment slope.

If no Flow Length is defined, then this entry will be blank. If a Flow Length is specified and no Terrain Elevation Surface is defined, then the default value of slope will be 0.0300.

Hydraulic Radius

This data grid column entry will be enabled if Channel Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type. The default value of the Hydraulic Radius is 0.45 ft.

Surface Roughness/Type

This data grid column entry changes its behavior depending upon the Runoff Flow Type selected. When Sheet Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type, then an entry field with a lookup […] button will be displayed in the corresponding Surface Roughness/Type column field. If Sheet Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type, the default value for the corresponding Surface Roughness/Type column will be 0.4000.

Clicking the […] lookup button under the Surface Roughness/Type column displays the Overland Flow Roughness lookup dialog box.

When Shallow Concentrated Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type, then a dropdown combo box will be displayed in the corresponding Surface Roughness/Type column field with the following entries.

  • Unpaved (default entry)
  • Agricultural Crops
  • Bare Ground
  • Forest With Underbush
  • Forest Without Underbush
  • Long Grass
  • Paved
  • Short Grass

When Channel Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type, then an entry field with a lookup […] button will be displayed in the corresponding Surface Roughness/Type column field. If Channel Flow is selected as the Runoff Flow Type, the default value for the corresponding Surface Roughness/Type column will be 0.0450.

Clicking the […] lookup button under the Surface Roughness/ Type column displays the Manning’s Roughness lookup dialog box.

TOC

This data column entry displays the computed Time of Concentration (TOC) value.

Terrain Elevation Surface

This dropdown entry is used to select the terrain surface available in the project. The dropdown entry by default is set to the current scenario’s terrain surface.

Precipitation Data Source

This dropdown entry is used to select the precipitation data source for regions such as Austria, Germany, Ontario (Canada), and the USA.

The available precipitation data source options are:

  • Austria – Bundesministerium Wasserwirtschaft eHYD Data Service
  • Germany – Deutscher Wetterdienst – Klima und Umwelt
  • Ontario – Environment Ontario Ministry of Transportation
  • USA – NOAA Atlas 14 (PFDS) Precipitation Frequency Data Server
  • USA – NRCC (Northeast Regional Climate Center) PFDS

2yr-24hr Rainfall Depth

This entry stores the 2-year 24-hour rainfall depth for the sheet flow computations. Clicking the [Retrieve] button retrieves the rainfall data for the selected location.

Note that the data table fields which are not editable are grayed (or colored green) to denote read-only.

After defining or editing the required table value(s), click the [Compute] button to calculate the results of the Subbasin TOC Data table.

Exporting Subbasin TOC Data Table

After computing the subbasin TOC data, click the [Export] button to export the subbasin TOC tabular data into a spreadsheet. Alternatively, right-click on any of the column headers or editable table cells and select Export Table to Excel or Export Table to PDF command from the context menu to export the data into the desired format.
