.hce File Extension

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

what is a .hce file?

Files with HCE extension are used for older version of HydroCAD application. This application runs on Windows computers and was created for the purpose of providing an easy to use solution for documenting, analyzing and designing wide variety of drainage systems. HCE files contain information on river water flows which are utilized by HydroCAD to formulate on-screen routing diagram, generate SCS unit comprehensive hydrograph runoffs, automate various pond size hydrograph routing, synthesize and project timed flow series and excessive flow estimate, perform exfiltration calculations and create instant printable graphics and reports which can be saved in various file format for trouble-free file import and export. HCE files created with HydroCAD application can be viewed simultaneously with other similar files and can be stored on both local and network storage for easy data sharing among large number of users such as engineering firms formulating and designing acres of watersheds, spillways and river basin systems for an entire region.

how to open a .hce file?

Launch a .hce 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 .hce file will open it.

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 .hce 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, .hce. 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.
