Course Objective

The objectives of this course: To introduce the basic tools of statistics in planning, analysis and design of water related structures in connection to hydrology and hydraulic engineering. To enable also the senior students to introduce to get aquint to the knowledge of statistical methods into engineering hydrology and water resources subjects.

Course Content

Introduction to role of probability, statistics and uncertainty. Random variables for analytical modeling, parameter estimation techniques. Discrete and continuous probability distribution functions. Point and regional frequency analysis using L-moment ratio. Testing statistical hypothesis with applications.

Learning Outcomes

Filling the gap between related cources (statistics and engineering hydrology) and other technical elective cources offered in the field of water sciences and water resources engineering.
