Solucionario Ven Te Chow Hidrologia Aplicada is a document that contains the solutions to the problems of the book Hidrologia Aplicada by Ven Te Chow, David R. Maidment and Larry W. Mays[^2^]. The book is a comprehensive and authoritative reference on hydrology and water resources engineering, covering topics such as hydrologic processes, rainfall-runoff analysis, frequency analysis, flood routing, groundwater flow, water quality, water resources planning and management, and hydraulic structures[^2^]. The document is available online for free download[^1^].
Ven Te Chow was a Chinese-American engineer who was a widely recognized hydrologist and hydraulic engineer, acclaimed for his contributions to hydrology and water resources development[^3^]. He was born in Hangzhou, China, in 1919 and moved to the United States in 1948. He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1950. He was a professor at the same university from 1951 to 1981. He authored or co-authored over 200 publications, including several influential books such as Applied Hydrology (1964), Open-Channel Hydraulics (1959), and Handbook of Applied Hydrology (1964). He received many honors and awards for his achievements, such as the ASCE Julian Hinds Award (1975), the ASCE Hunter Rouse Hydraulic Engineering Award (1977), and the IAHR International Award (1980). He died in 1981 at the age of 61[^3^].The book Hidrologia Aplicada is divided into 12 chapters, each covering a different aspect of hydrology and water resources engineering. The first chapter introduces the basic concepts and principles of hydrology, such as the hydrologic cycle, water balance, hydrologic data, and hydrologic models. The second chapter deals with precipitation and its measurement, analysis, and estimation. The third chapter covers evaporation and transpiration processes and methods of estimation. The fourth chapter discusses infiltration and soil water movement, including the Green-Ampt and Horton models. The fifth chapter presents the concepts and methods of rainfall-runoff analysis, such as the unit hydrograph, the rational method, and the SCS curve number method. The sixth chapter focuses on frequency analysis and probability distributions of hydrologic variables, such as floods, droughts, and rainfall. The seventh chapter explains the principles and techniques of flood routing in rivers and reservoirs, such as the Muskingum method, the kinematic wave method, and the level pool method. The eighth chapter introduces the fundamentals of groundwater flow and aquifer hydraulics, such as Darcy's law, the Dupuit-Forchheimer assumption, and the Theis solution. The ninth chapter covers water quality and pollution control, including physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of water, water quality standards and criteria, and wastewater treatment processes. The tenth chapter deals with water resources planning and management, such as water demand analysis, water supply systems, water allocation and optimization models, and water resources systems analysis. The eleventh chapter describes the design and analysis of hydraulic structures, such as dams, spillways, weirs, gates, culverts, bridges, and pipes. The twelfth chapter provides an overview of open-channel flow and hydraulics, such as uniform flow, gradually varied flow, rapidly varied flow, unsteady flow, and hydraulic jumps. 061ffe29dd
