Title: An improved engineering design flood estimation technique: removing the need to estimate initial loss / by Theresa Michelle Heneker.
Author: Heneker, Theresa Michelle
Issue Date: 2002
School/Discipline: Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Abstract: Develops an alternative design flood estimation methodology. Establishing a relationship between catchment characteristics and the rainfall excess frequency duration proportions enables the definition of these proportions for generic catchment types, increasing the potential for translation to catchments with limited data but similar hydrographic properties, thereby improving design process.
