Synopsis

This course provides the basic skills to carry out the hydrologic analyses and designs that are often encountered in engineering practice. Knowledge of engineering hydrology is required for the design of stormwater drainage systems, for the management of flooding and is also needed to determine how much water can be reliably obtained from water supply catchments and groundwater systems. The course provides a background to hydrological techniques used by professional engineers, including those codified in 'Australian Rainfall and Runoff-A Guide to Flood Estimation'. Students will undertake a range of hydrological analyses and computations using spreadsheets.
