This course presents basic principles and technical procedures for hydrologic engineering analysis of flood damage reduction measures. Procedures described herein are considered appropriate and useable for hydrologic engineering analyses required for planning and design of flood damage reduction measures. Basic concepts and procedures for analyzing selected flood damage reduction measures are presented. Emphasis is placed on hydrologic engineering analyses required for economic evaluations and performance criteria associated with various measures. The course overviews the planning problem, identifies requirements for properly sizing, locating, operating, and maintaining flood damage reduction measures. The without-project conditions and measure-specific requirements are defined. Appendices provide references to additional technical guidance and summarize computer program capabilities for meeting the plan evaluation needs.
