CIVL 1160 - Applied Hydrology

Civil Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

In this course, you will be presented with the basic concepts and techniques needed for watershed analysis and drainage facility design. You will develop basic observation and estimation skills through worksheets, mapwork and a small field project. Fundamental concepts include rainfall intensity, runoff, catchment area, streamflow, infiltration, mass balance, snowmelt, rainfall frequency, and the hydrologic cycle. The streamflow estimation procedures discussed are the rational method and the unit hydrograph.
