Develops the ability to perform rainfall-runoff modelling using the principles and procedures described in Australian Rainfall and Runoff, Australia's handbook for hydrologic design. Students will learn to use industry-standard software to calculate flood hydrographs and predict flood peaks under a range of different hydrologic conditions.
Rainfall-runoff modelling approaches
Runoff: the output from a rainfall-runoff model
Rainfall: the input to a rainfall runoff-model
Transfer functions and accounting for losses
Application of rainfall-runoff modelling in contemporary practice
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
