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

what is a .hcr file?

Files with HCR extension are associated with HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling application. This application was developed to provide automated stormwater runoff solution that can perform wide variety of computations involving drainage designs. Files in HCR format are utilized by this application to save rainfall curve data files or rainfall allocation used in simulating effective SBUH or SCS runoff processes. Rainfall curve data are usually presented in table form which can be downloaded from various reliable sources such as NRCC and NOAA or in particular application be defined by the user. User-defined rain fall allocation data filed in the Rainfall folder of the HydroCAD application are automatically saved as HCR files. HCR file format are also used by HydroCAD to store its pre-defined rainfall tables classified in different types and installed along with the application. HydroCAD-10, the most recent version of HydroCAD enables users to formulate suggested rainfall distribution derived from local data.

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 .hcr 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, .hcr. 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.
