  • One-stop resource
  • Sets the scene for the near future
  • Most risk and uncertainty studies on hydrosystem engineering (1967 to 2012) are presented in the book’s Appendix in table format

Water engineers require knowledge of stochastic, frequency concepts, uncertainty analysis, risk assessment, and the processes that predict unexpected events.

This book presents the basics of stochastic, risk and uncertainty analysis, and random sampling techniques in conjunction with straightforward examples which are solved step by step. In addition, appropriate Excel functions are included as an alternative to solve the examples, and two real case studies is presented in the last chapters of book.
