The International River Interface Cooperative (iRIC) software application provides an integrated river simulation environment.

iRIC provides a comprehensive, unified environment in which data that are necessary for river analysis solvers (hereafter: solvers) can be compiled, rivers can be simulated and analytical results can be visualized.

The highly flexible iRIC interface allows various solvers to be imported, or you can use one of the iRIC solvers. Upon selecting the solver, iRIC selects functions suitable for the solver and prepares the optimal simulation environment.

Because the iRIC functions vary depending on the solver, the method of using the iRIC application depends on the solver. To determine which functions are usable for each solver, refer to Solver Tutorials.

This user’s manual explains general methods for using all the iRIC functions.
