Version 5.3.0 (April 12, 2016)

This new version provides much-improved features and capabilities of the three core modules of DDMSW that include Hydrology, River Mechanics, and Storm Drainage Hydraulics. On the Hydrology module, DDMSW enhances the development of HEC-1 model and the use of Rational Method including post-processing and better precision reporting of model results. On River mechanics module, the program offers refined procedures in performing scour evaluation, riprap sizing, launchable riprap design, sediment yield analysis, and lateral erosion investigation. The new release of the program also offers new tools and improved features of the Storm Drainage Hydraulics module.

Upgrade to Version 5.3.0 from Versions 4.8.2 (April 12, 2016)

This will upgrade Version 4.8.2 of DDMSW to Version 5.3.0. The new upgrade provides enhanced features and capabilities on the three (3) core modules of the software that include Hydrology, River Mechanics, and Storm Drainage Hydraulics and resolves a number of bugs and issues that have been identified in the previous versions of the program.

Version 4.8.2 (December 7, 2015): Correction for Sediment Yield Bed Load Calculation

For sediment yield bed load computation, the unit sediment bed load [i.e., qs (cfs/ft)] should be multiplied with the average width to obtain the bed load (Qs). However, in DDMSW version 4.8.2, the top width is used instead of the average width. This may increase the bed load incorrectly. Before the next version of DDMSW is released in 2016, the users may develop a simple Excel to estimate the bed load Qs based on the qs, flow area, and flow depth results from DDMSW 4.8.2. The average width can be computed by dividing the flow area with the flow depth. The bed load estimation should be applied individually to main channel, left overbank, and right overbank. The total bed load is the sum of bed load of main channel, left overbank, and right overbank. The final bed load volume (Vs) can be estimated by Vw*Qs/Qw where Vw is the runoff volume, Qw is the runoff peak, and Qs is the bed load (cfs).

Version 4.8.2 Patch (October 6, 2014)

Version 4.8.0 Full Install (June 16, 2014)

This new version provides new features and capabilities that enhance the development of HEC-1 model and use of Rational Method as well as in the post-processing of model results. In addition to the improvements on the hydrology module, significant refinements have also been implemented on the river mechanics module including riprap sizing, launchable riprap, sediment yield analysis, lateral erosion, and low-flow incisement methodology. Also, street drainage hydraulics and storm water drainage systems modeling are two features that are currently implemented in this new release of the program.

Version 4.8.0 Patch (June 16, 2014)

This patch adds more capabilities and features to the previous version of DDMSW (Version 4.6.4d) that enhance the development of HEC-1 model and use of Rational Method as well as in the post-processing of model results. In addition to the improvements on the hydrology module, significant refinements have also been implemented on the river mechanics module including riprap sizing, launchable riprap, sediment yield analysis, lateral erosion, and low-flow incisement methodology. Also, street drainage hydraulics and storm water drainage systems modeling are two features that are currently implemented in the new DDMSW Version 4.8.0.

Version 4.6.4d Full Install (September 17, 2013)

Version 4.6.4d Patch (September 16, 2013)

This patch adds a capability to the previous DDMSW 4.6.4 version to compute/update NSTPS parameters for Channel Routing involving RS Card for imported HEC-1 Input Data Files. Also, the patch fixes the installation issue with 64-bit Windows 7 operating system.

Version 4.6.4 Patch (March 21, 2013)

This patch fixes a few minor bugs that have been found in DDMSW 4.6.0 including the bug found in Neill's general scour equation. There are also some updates for 64 bit operating systems that affect the PREFRE and MCUHP1 models.
