CE1001 Hydrology Syllabus

CE1001 HYDROLOGY 3 0 0 100


OBJECTIVE
At the end of the semester, the student shall be having a good understanding of all the components of the hydrological cycle. The mechanics of rainfall, its spatial and temporal measurement and their applications will be understood. Simple statistical analysis and application of probability distribution of rainfall and run off shall also be understood. Student will also learn simple methods of flood routing and ground water hydrology.

1. PRECIPITATION 10
Hydrologic cycle – Types of precipitation – Forms of
precipitation – Measurement of Rainfall – Spatial measurement methods – Temporal measurement methods – Frequency analysis of point rainfall – Intensity, duration, frequency relationship – Probable maximum precipitation.

2. ABSTRACTION FROM PRECIPITATION 10
Losses from precipitation – Evaporation process – Reservoir evaporation – Infiltration process – Infiltration capacity – Measurement of infiltration – Infiltration indices – Effective rainfall.

3. HYDROGRAPHS 10
Factors affecting Hydrograph – Baseflow separation – Unit hydrograph – Derivation of unit hydrograph – S curve hydrograph – Unit hydrograph of different deviations - Synthetic Unit Hydrograph


4. FLOODS AND FLOOD ROUTING 9
