Simulation of the hydraulic behaviour of the river basin boundaries is important for river engineering projects, prediction of flood damages in different conditions and economic feasibility studies, flood control, and other social programs related to the system of the river. In this study, river bed and flood zoning map in the range of over 155 km from the Zayandehrud dam to Nekouabad Diversion Dam were addressed by using the software's ArcGIS, HEC-RAS and HEC-GeoRAS extension. For this purpose, a digital elevation map in 1: 250,000 scale was provided and cross-sectional area was divided in 1085. Manning roughness coefficient was determined by Cowan. Finally, data entered into the software HEC-RAS and was analysed. After determining the area of flood in the return periods of 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 200 years in all cross sections, the results were entered into the ArcGIS environment and flood zoning maps were obtained. The results showed that of the 200-year flood lands, 96% of the land flood was related to the return period of 25 years.
