Author: HydroCAD Software Solutions LLC
ISBN  9780913633168,  176 pages,  8.5" x 11.5", published 2020

The HydroCAD Reference Manual provides detailed documentation, including equations and illustrations, for all the calculations performed by HydroCAD.  Although most of the content is also included in the built-in Help system, we believe the printed page is still the best format for presentation and understanding of this technical material.

The Manual is a valuable guide for all HydroCAD users, and an excellent hydrology & hydraulics reference in general.  The 176-page book is organized into twenty-six major sections covering all the topics listed below.

How to get a copy:

The Reference Manual is available in two formats:

You can order the printed Manual through Amazon.com or directly from HydroCAD.

A PDF is also available on the HydroCAD 10.2 help menu.  For earlier versions please use your download email to obtain a copy of the manual.
