From the Publisher:

An applications-oriented introduction to engineering analysis and design methods that are related to various components of the hydrologic cycle.

From the Back Cover:

Hydrologic Analysis and Design provides an introduction to the development and use of engineering design methods. With an emphasis on application, both students and practicing professionals will benefit from the detailed procedures for design. Realistic case-study examples demonstrate the application of widely used hydrologic models, including peak discharge, hydrograph, and design-storm computer methods. The TR-55 and TR-20 computer methods based on runoff curve number hydrology are presented. All phases of the hydrologic cycle are discussed, with an emphasis placed on small watershed design, urban hydrology, and storm water management. Methods for river reach and reservoir storage routing are detailed.

Outstanding features of the text include:
  • Design orientation, enabling the student to make the transition from classroom to professional practice.
  • Up to 25 worked examples per chapter, with many of these detailing real-world applications.
  • Practical application exercises with end-of-book answers in most sections of the book.
  • Up to 77 end-of-chapter quantitative assignments that will help students practice analysis and design procedures.
  • An introduction to professional ethics and an ethics discussion question that involves technical issues of the chapter.
Readers of this book will learn to:
  • Statistically analyze hydrologic data for the development of prediction models.
  • Delineate a watershed and compute important watershed characteristics, including the time of concentration.
  • Develop regionalized peak discharge equations.
  • Design drainage systems for small developing watersheds.
  • Design storm water detention basins to control the hydrologic effects of land development.
  • Develop design hydrographs for large watershed analyses or measure the effects of land use change.
  • Route design hydrographs through stream channels and storage structures.
  • Estimate quantities of erosion from land surfaces.
