Reach subdivision for storage flood routing in rivers.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

An investigation into the role and effects of reach subdivision on the solution of the concentrated storage method of flood routing was carried out. The significance and features of the observed trend of the solution with increasing reach subdivision were discussed. A procedure, referred to as the attenuation profile method, was introduced to determine the characteristic reach length for reach subdivision in the application of the concentrated storage routing method. The applicability of the procedure was demonstrated using flood data from two Australian rivers. (A) (Microfiche)
