The study of annual damage statistics due to floods in Iran and the world shows the extent of flood damage to natural and human resources in different regions. Determining the flood zone of rivers in order to protect national resources and reduce flood damage provides the possibility of protecting the river from encroachment and the construction of any unauthorized facilities in it. Therefore, in the present study, the capability of numerical models in simulating the flood zone of rivers was evaluated in the range of Azarshahr Qushqura river and the two-dimensional hydraulic model HEC-RAS 5.0.7 and one-dimensional HEC-RAS model were compared. Changes in the hydraulic characteristics of the flood flow including depth and velocity of the flow at different cross sections of the models were evaluated. The results showed that the water surface level (flow depth) of the two-dimensional model HEC-RAS compared to the one-dimensional model had the lowest error as compared to other hydraulic parameters of flood flow. The two-dimensional HEC-RAS model showed the highest error rate in the flow velocity parameter in comparison to the one-dimensional model. The results indicated that two-dimensional HEC-RAS model V5.0.7 determined the surface of the flood zone 12.46 % more than the one-dimensional HEC-RAS model. The confirmation of the resulting zones on the current state of the river and comparison with the river aerial photo of 1346 indicated the higher accuracy of the two-dimensional HEC-RAS model in estimating the flood zone of the river.
