    analysis. In order to verify that the Coastal Plain flood-frequency characteristics were similar to those in Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, the published 1-percent annual exceedance probability (AEP) flows for rural basins in Virginia (Austin and others, ). A hydrograph shows how the river level changes over time at a specific location. Forecast hydrographs are displayed when flooding is expected, otherwise the hydrograph for the past few days is provided, if the data are available. At key river gages, such as along navigable rivers, daily forecast hydrographs are.

This article explains the application of search algorithms to determine the parameters for Clark’s unit hydrograph. The golden section search algorithm and discrete horizontal line search method were applied to a composite unit hydrograph developed for a watershed.

    Determination of synthetic flood determined; it is a starting point of the flood. The ending time of the flood hydrograph is defined as the time on the falling limb when the flow equals to Q 0. The rising limb time t k is the next value that should be determined for each hydrograph. Figure 1. . Phase 2 will analyse datasets, develop techniques, and produce tools to enable reliable flood estimation for: small rural and urban catchments, changes in flood response due to urbanisation, flood peaks alone, and flood hydrographs. If Phase 1 suggest any new methods should be developed in Phase 2 .

[Larry R Bohman; South Carolina. Department of Highways and. A method is given for simulating a typical (average) flood hydrograph corresponding to a peak discharge of specific recurrence interval for ungaged rural basins having drainage areas less than sq mi in South Carolina.

Dimensionless hydrographs were developed for three regions on the basis of storm events at 49 stations that represent a wide range of drainage area sizes and basin.

FINAL REPORT. The O'Donnell method was used to compute unit hydrographs and lagtimes for floods at 80 gaging stations. Analysis of this data indicated that a dimensionless hydrograph based on one-half lagtime duration provided the best fit of the observed data.

Flood hydrographs are graphs that show how a drainage basin responds to a period of rainfall. They are used to plan for flood situations and times of drought. They show the river discharge that occurs as a result of precipitation from an earlier storm.

Key terms on the hydrograph, illustrated below, are. Stream Discharge Hydrograph. This is one of the most frequently created hydrographs. It shows the change in discharge of a stream over time. The blue line on the hydrograph above shows how the discharge of the Tioga River changed between August 29 and September 5, C.

Flood Hydrographs. Besides the peak discharges, the hydraulic engineer may be interested in the flood volume and time distribution of runoff. A flood hydrograph is a plot or tabulation of discharge with respect to time. Flood hydrographs can be used to route floods through culverts, flood storage structures, and other highway facilities.
