.hcc File Extension

Developer: HydroCAD Software Solutions
File type: HydroCAD Prefab Chamber Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hcc. Files with the file extension .hcc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hcc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hcc file?

The HCC file extension is used in files created with HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling System application. This application was developed by HydroCAD Software Solutions as a stand alone program and was initially introduced in 1986 to provide an ideal drainage modeling system platform with the use of Computer Aided Design, CAD technology commonly used by civil engineers. The CAD technology drawing tools are utilized to provide visual geometric interpretation of information that would lead the motion of a tool or machine to follow the path provided or planned. HCC files are used by this application to save pre-fabricated stormwater storage chamber model such as plastic arch chambers, modular plastic chambers, concrete chambers, concrete pipe chambers, double-wall HDPE pipe storage, single wall corrupted HDPE pipe, corrugated metal pipe storage and custom chamber solutions formulated and designed for HydroCAD’s automatic underground storage chamber models and layouts, detention time calculations based on regulations for water quality, exfiltration calculations to help augment the utility of the drainage systems and support computations for various storage capacity.

how to open a .hcc file?

Launch a .hcc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hcc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hcc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hcc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hcc file will open the correct application.

HydroCAD is software that was developed by HydroCAD Software Solutions which is usually being used by Civil Engineers in order to aid with their creation of stormwater runoff. The software has a wide variety of built-in drainage calculators mainly used for culvert and automatic hydraulics calculations, modelling and automated layout for storage systems which are underground, runoff hydrographs which includes SBUH, NRCS as well as SCS. HydroCAD has a built-in library consisting of predefined rainfall or local rainfall. It has simulations which are being used for advanced dam breach. It gives its users the capabilities of managing as well as reporting different rainfall events. The package has the ability of automatically calculating pond storage as well as calculating of storage chambers which are embedded. HydroCAD works on just about any desktop which has Windows Operating System without the need to install other types of CAD software.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hcc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hcc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
