Abstract: Flood is disastrous for developing countries, its assessment is important for flood risk management. The present case describes the formation of a hydrodynamic model for flood mitigation studies. The 1D hydrodynamic model is generated for Sabarmati River from Chiloda Bridge to Vasana barrage. The 1D river geometry has been generated using Cartoset-1 DEM of 10 m resolution. The boundary condition for upstream and downstream has been fixed and the model is simulated under the unsteady flow conditions. As an outcome, the discharge, water surface elevation, velocity and flow area have been derived. Afterwards, the simulated flow and stages at the known section are compared with the observed data and show a significant correlation. The present case shows the application of HEC-RAS and HEC-GeoRAS open-source software in the prediction of river stages, hence applicable for flood mitigation and management in developing countries under a scarcity of data, fund and skilled human resources.
