I am carrying out my research work for flood forecasting at Sardar Sarovar Dam site on Narmada River, Gujarat, India by using the HEC-HMS software. Can any one please help me regarding this research (flood forecasting )can you please share report and your experience with me? Thanks,

Case study mentioned by Dany is uploaded in the group library. You can read the research paper named "Application of HEC-HMS for flood forecasting in Misai and Wan’an catchments in China" written by James Oloche OLEYIBLO, Zhi-jia LI here

HEC-1 is a mathematical watershed model that contains several methods with which to
simulate surface runoff and river/reservoir flow in river basins. The hydrologic model,
together with flood damage computations (also included in the model), provides a basis for
evaluation of flood control projects.
Many researcher have used this for their forecasting. I was suggested to share some case studies with you. You can check out this paper on Google 1. Application of HEC-HMS for flood forecasting in Misai
and Wan’an catchments in China
