The objective of the research report is the investigation and implementation of the methodological framework for the statistical analysis of intense rains. In the report are initially reviewed the main concepts of statistical hydrology and are described the extreme statistical distributions, as well as other distributions of general use, which are applied for the analysis of intense rains. Moreover, we describe the statistical methods for the daily rainfall time series, which are employed within stochastic simulation models. Emphasis is given to the development of a methodology for constructing the idf (ombrian) curves, which are typical tools in hydrologic design. Finally, we present the computational system for the extraction of ombrian curves (Ombros software), and we explain it operation with regard to its theoretical context as well as from the end user perspective, by means of examples.
