Prerequisite
Knowledge of hydrological cycle and its component, ground water hydrology, Basic ideas about floods, drought, hydropower plants and reservoir
Rationale
1. To develop basic understanding about precipitation, infiltration, evapotranspiration, hydrograph, capacity of reservoir
2. To enable the students for estimation of runoff, infiltration, evaporation, floods and reservoir capacity
3. To create understanding about features of various types of dam
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Compute mean precipitation from a catchment
2. Compute infiltration rate and capacity
3. Calculate runoff from a catchment
4. Compute peak flood flow
5. Compute reservoir capacity using mass curve
6. Compute dependable flow using flow duration curve for the requirement of irrigation, power generation etc.
7. Basic idea about reservoir sedimentation and its control
8. Compute the capacity of well
9. Estimation of design flood for the design of hydraulic structure
10. Measures of water conservation to battle drought

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
