Abstract: The use of computers in all engineering disciplines has, in the past decade, increased to the point where virtually all engineers now use these powerful tools. This is especially true in the water resources field. The papers included in this book cover computer applications in planning, analysis, forecasting, modeling, operation, and management. These applications are discussed in relation to water resources, water supply, reservoirs, pollutant transport, groundwater flow, hydraulic networks, water utilities, water distribution systems, river basins, lakes, and flood control. Interactive graphics, computer-aided design, data base management, and expert systems are also covered.
