.hci File Extension

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

what is a .hci file?

The HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling System employs files in HCI format as data files. Data files are the most common type of files usually stored as basic text or in binary format which are either created by the users or installed along with a software application. HCI files are utilized by HydroCAD as IDF or Intensity-Duration-Frequency data file containing information on the expected amount of rainfall in a given period of time. IDF files in HCI format can be customized or created by hand with the use of IDF curve report feature. These files along with the subattachment area and coefficient runoff data are utilized by HydroCAD’s Rational Method to create peak flow forecasts crucial for developing computer aided design that would simulate stormwater runoff. HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling System application is a combination of SBUH, graphics, virtual routing diagram, TR-55, built-in hydraulics and TR-20 developed to provide an easy to use platform for creating and managing simple runoffs and complex drainage projects.

how to open a .hci file?

Launch a .hci 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 .hci 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 .hci files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hci file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hci file will open the correct application.

HydroCAD Software Solutions HydroCAD

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 .hci 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, .hci. 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.
