Part of: Hydraulics and Hydrology in the Small Computer Age


The advent of the 16 bit or larger personal computer has the potential for significantly increasing the availability of a powerful tool for hydraulics engineers. In the past, the understanding of a water distribution system was usually left to the expert. The city or county engineer, or the local consultant engineer can now do much more easily what the experts did just a few years ago. This paper discusses developments and reasons underlying the impact that small computers are making on the field.
