ABOUT THE BOOK

APPLIED HYDROLOGY

AUTHORS : VEN TE CHOW (Late Professor of Hydrosystems Engineering University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) , DAVID R MAIDMENT (Associate Professor of Civil Engineering The University of Texas at Austin), LARRY W MAYS (Professor of Civil Engineering The University of Texas at Austin)

PUBLISHERS : McGraw-Hill, Inc.

Applied Hydrology is a textbook for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in hydrology and is a reference for practicing hydrologists. Surface water hydrology is the focus of the book which is presented in three sections: Hydrologic Processes, Hydrologic Analysis, and Hydrologic Design. 

Hydrologic processes are covered in Chapters 1 to 6, which describe the scientific principles governing hydrologic phenomena. The hydrologic system is visualized as a generalized control volume, and the Reynold's Transport Theorem (or general control volume equation) from fluid mechanics is used to apply the physical laws governing mass, momentum, and energy to the flow of atmospheric water, subsurface water, and surface water. This section is completed by a chapter on hydrologic measurement. 

Hydrologic analysis is treated in the next six chapters (7 to 12), which emphasize computational methods in hydrology for specific tasks such as rainfallrunoff modeling, flow routing, and analysis of extreme events. These chapters are organized in a sequence according to the way the analysis treats the space and time variability and the randomness of the hydrologic system behavior. Special attention is given in Chapters 9 and 10 to the subject of flow routing by the dynamic wave method where the recent availability of standardized computer programs has made possible the general application of this method. 

Hydrologic design is presented in the final three chapters (13 to 15), which focus on the risks inherent in hydrologic design, the selection of design storms including probable maximum precipitation, and the calculation of design flows for various problems including the design of storm sewers, flood control works, and water supply reservoirs.
