Knowledge and ability to understand:
At the end of the course, the student must have acquired theoretical and practical knowledge to develop rainfall-runoff and flood propagation numerical models.
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
- calculate the discharge hydrograph of a catchment by means concentrated and semi-distributed rainfall-runoff models.
- to study the propagation of a flood wave in a river by means of a 1D hydraulic model.
Autonomy of judgment:
the student should be able to independently develop a hydrological model of a particular catchment and analyse the results of other models.
The student will have sufficient language ownership regarding the specific technical terminology and must be able to present the obtained results using graphs, tables and texts in a clear and effective way.
