Part of: Hydraulics and Hydrology in the Small Computer Age

Abstract: Spreadsheet software packages are available for virtually all micro computers in use today. Although they are quite often thought of as business tools, their usefulness as engineering tools should not be overlooked. In hydraulics and hydrology, many types of problems are commonly solved in tabular form using a calculator, pencil, and sheet of paper; for example, hydrograph generation, flow routing, hydraulic properties analysis, laboratory data logging and reduction, etc. Examples are presented documenting their use in the solution of practical problems.
