This paper has been prepared as a part of the project Introductory Manual of Computer Services undertaken by the Committee on Coordination of the Technical Council on Computer Practices of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Several Generally available computer programs are briefly described. The programs, chosen because of wide usage, include both single-purpose programs and large, comprehensive system programs for both hydraulic-engineering and engineering-hydrology applications. An extensive bibliography is provided which lists author and source. Applications to urban hydrology, sewer design, transient flows in closed conduits, pipe network analysis, watershed hydrology, flood-hydrology development and routing, water-surface profiles, and reservoir operations are considered. The intent is to summarize usage and identify program sources for practicing engineers who have a need to use programs but are not intimately familiar with source and availability.
