Coverage includes the important hydrologic processes (highlighting watersheds), or geography who need a good reference on hydrologic analysis and design. It explores the physical processes of the hydrologic cycle, the computational fundatmentals of hydrologic analysis, and the elements of design hydrology. The Hydrologic Cycle; Hydrologic Designs; Analysis versus Synthesis; Water Budget Analysis and Synthesis; A Conceptual Representation.

It got me through the coursework and I continue to use it in richagd career 2 years later. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Although sections of the book introduce engineering design methods for engineering students, the concepts and methods pertain to students in a range of similar disciplines including geology, geography, forestry, and planning. Description For courses in hydrology. Delineate a watershed and compute important watershed characteristics, including the time of concentration.
Improved discussion of time and concentration. Share your thoughts with other customers. The Fourth Edition mmccuen the organization richars the chapters to strengthen the focus and scope of each section.
An introduction to professional ethics makes the connection between engineering design and the hydrologist’s proper service to society. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. Mekonnen Mera marked it as to-read May 15, This book provides a real-world, applications-oriented introduction to engineering hydrology with an emphasis on design.
Book: Hydrologic analysis and design [Richard H. McCuen] | Syampadzi Nurroh –
Improved calculations of stage—storage—discharge relations. Hydrologic Analysis and Design, 4th Edition. While the book is devoted to the quantitative aspects of hydrology, the practitioner should always give consideration to the societal effects of a project. The text covered the basics of surface water flow well enough not spectacularbut there were numerous issues; namely incorrect answers to the exercises at the end of the chapter, numerous typos, and the information regarding groundwater is very poor at best.
So far that I have used it, it is a complete book on hydrology with descriptive chapters and examples. Although all of the details of these design methods are not given, the material provided should demonstrate to the student that design computations are not difficult and that the design methods have a basis in the fundamental concepts of the hydrologic cycle.
Be the first to ask a question about Hydrologic Analysis and Design. I also want to acknowledge the many students who have read drafts of various sections of the manuscript. Aci Code Edition.

Hydrologic Analysis and Design
To the extent possible, I tried to make the chapters self-contained so that the order in which the topics are presented is not constrained by the book’s structure. Azooz marked it as to-read Mar 16, No eBook available Amazon.
I wish I could’ve found hard cover instead of paperback. Prakash Mansuria marked it as to-read Feb 18, From the Back Cover Hydrologic Analysis and Design provides an introduction to the development and use of engineering design methods. I also greatly appreciate the helpful suggestions of the following reviewers of a prospectus of this third edition: Hydrologic Analysis and Design 4th Edition Hardcover.
There’s a problem loading this rivhard right now. The material is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students as well as for the practitioner interested in reviewing the fundamentals of hydrology.
Mc Cuen himself, in which he had to complement the lectures with numerous handouts with graphs, formulas, examples, and procedures that are not available in this textbook. Mary Garcia added it Nov 04,
