Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering

Abstract: A review of traditional hydrologic design shows that it is inadequate. The continued adaptation of manual techniques into computer software without a major change in fundamental assumptions is unable to meet the requirements for hydrologic analysis now or in the future. Hydrologists must seek methods that use the power of the computer to yield improved analyses; not just do analyses from the days of manual computation faster. New methods that exploit the ever increasing power of the digital computer and that are also a logical extension of traditional methods are outlined.
