Abstract
This research presents an analysis of the damage inflicted by uncontrolled runoff upon the three Great Walls of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Saqsaywaman, Peru. The analysis is based upon recreating the original Inca terracing system using AutoCAD Civil3D modeling. The results of the 3D model creation and runoff analysis show that implementation of the Inca terracing scheme will improve upon the current runoff conditions and protect the three Great Walls from further damage.
