The objective of the research report is the literature review of the theoretical framework of flood hydrology, which is branch of engineering hydrology. The research aims to a critical review of the world experience (in terms of methodologies as well as computer tools), and the practices that are employed within flood hydrology studies in Greece. The topics that are examined are: (a) fundamental concepts of flood hydrology are related processes; (b) characteristic hydrological magnitudes of river basins (physiographic properties, runoff coefficient, time of concentrations, curve number, unit hydrograph, time-area curves); (c) probabilistic assessment of extreme hydrological events; (d) methods for estimating design flows; (e) methods for estimating design hydrographs; (f) flood routing models; (g) computer packages; (h) Greek standards and practices.
