You may bring three review sheets with you with anything
written on them that you like. The exam
is scheduled for Wednesday May 12,
Here are some practice problems and answers for the material on design precipitation. The fully worked solutions are in the homework folder in the Engineering Library.
14.1.1 (2.76 inches)
14.2.1 (2.2 in/hr, 2.2 inches)
14.4.1 Time (min) 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 40-50 50-60
Rainfall (in) 0.20 0.30 0.90 0.43 0.2 0.17
The final exam will cover the material that we’ve had since the second quiz in a similar manner to the earlier quizzes, and then there will be some comprehensive questions that review the whole curriculum for the semester.
