Course Description:

Engineering Hydrology - 4EUS3HYI Goals To learn the principles of data analysis and data screening in hydrology. To acquire the necessary concepts for the design of hydraulic works aimed either at risk protection against floods or droughts, or at water resources storage and management. To master the necessary steps to reproduce the hydrological behaviour of a natural or urbanized watershed by choosing the most appropriate tools. Contact Isabella TOMASINO, Isabella TOMASINO Content This module is made of four components: 1. Engineering hydrology: water cycle, hydrological budget and hydrological regimes. Elements of metrology. Runoff generation: loss or production function and Unit Hydrograph or transfer function approach. 2. Statistical hydrology: basics of statistics for hydrology, model fitting techniques on a data sample and hypothesis testing. Stochastic relations between variables: simple and multiple linear correlation. Data screening and error detection. 3. Hydrological prediction and hydraulic works design: return period, design rainfall and design discharge. Main methods for extreme events prediction and for hydrological design at different scales: hydraulic works, natural watersheds, urban and anthropic watershed. 4. Hydrological modelling: main types of existing hydrological models and modeling steps. Two project-based learning assignments will be devoted to synthesize and link the themes provided by this module.
