      Project Summary – RES 10/21/ Problem. Planners and engineers require reliable estimates of the magnitude and frequency of floods to design bridges, culverts, and other structures near unregulated streams and rivers. In order to estimate the magnitude and frequency of floods at ungaged sites reliably, prediction. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Estimation of flood-frequency characteristics of small urban streams in North Carolina Water-Resources Investigations Report By Jeanne C Robbins and Benjamin F Pope III.

The at-site flood-frequency analysis of annual peak-flow data for urban and small, rural streams (through Septem ) included urban streamgages and 32 small, rural streamgages, defined in this report as basins draining less than 1 square mile.

WRIREstimation of Flood-Frequency Characteristics of Small Urban Streams in North Carolina North Dakota SIRRegional regression equations to estimate peak-flow frequency at sites in North Dakota using data through similar approach was applied to urban and small, rural streams (Feaster and others, ).

For this investigation, Southeast refers specifically to Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The analytical techniques used incorporate both urban and rural streamgages and, therefore, can be applied to urban and small, rural Size: KB. This report provides a method for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods for small streams in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area.

Data collected at 21 streamflow gaging stations were used in a multiple-regression analysis to develop equations for computation of peak-flow characteristics. The flood equations were determined by relating flood-frequency characteristics computed using.

The flood-frequency estimates are particularly important in densely populated urban areas. A multistate approach was used to update methods for determining the magnitude and frequency of floods in urban and small, rural streams that are not substantially affected by regulation or tidal fluctuations in Georgia, South Carolina, and North : Toby D Feaster, Anthony J Gotvald, J Curtis Weaver.

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the South Carolina Department of Transportation, updated these data from previous flood-frequency reports to aid officials who are active in floodplain management as well as those who design bridges, culverts, and levees, or other structures near streams where flooding is likely to occur.

Information is presented for estimating the magnitude and frequency of floods on streams in South Carolina. Flood-frequency characteristics for gaging stations were related to basin characteristics by multiple regression techniques for each of four physiographic provinces.

Equations were derived to estimate flood magnitudes at recurrence intervals ranging from 2 to years on Cited by: StreamStats Application. StreamStats is a Web application that provides access to an assortment of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analytical tools that are useful for water-resources planning and management, and for engineering and design purposes.

The map-based user interface can be used to delineate drainage areas for user-selected sites on streams, and then get basin characteristics. • Since small catchments are not well represented in HiFlows-UK, further flood peak data for small rural and urban catchments should be sought and analysed.

• Despite lack of bias, uncertainty in flood estimation remains high and there is a need to develop and test improved catchment descriptors, especially of soils and watercourse extent. Regional Flood Frequency Estimation Model. List of Related Publications.

Ungauged estimation can be obtained either by establishing a regression between catchments characteristics and the mean value of annual maxima, or by performing a direct regression of the at-site T-year event estimate on the catchment by: 3.

A flood frequency curve is a valuable tool to extrapolate how often a flood of a given discharge will occur.

A flood frequency curve can be constructed by plotting a graph of discharge versus recurrence interval. This can easily be accomplished provided you have a data .small dams in sparsely populated areas. In other engineering examples the appropriate design frequency may be deduced by optimising the balance between expected damage and the cost of damage reduction by flood control.

This requires estimates of the flood frequency relation and the extent of .Channel-forming discharges typically are associated with recurrence intervals less than five years and usually less than two years. However, the actual frequency of occurrence of these discharges is often several times more frequent than the statistical expectation.

This result was confirmed by using the Log-Pearson Type 3 statistical method to analyze measured annual series of instantaneous Cited by: 1.
