Flood Frequency and Design Flood Estimation Procedures in the United States: Progress and Challenges
Abstract Design flood estimation procedures in the United States have traditionally focused on two primary methods: frequency analysis of peak flows for floodplain management and levee design; and
The future role of dams in the United States of America
Storage and controlled distribution of water have been key elements of a human strategy to overcome the space and time variability of water, which have been marked by catastrophic droughts and floods
A review of applied methods in Europe for flood-frequency analysis in a changing environment:Floodfreq COST action ES0901: European procedures for flood frequency estimation
The report presents a review of methods used in Europe for trend analysis, climate change projections and non-stationary analysis of extreme precipitation and flood frequency. In addition, main
Two‐Component Extreme Value Distribution for Flood Frequency Analysis
Theoretical considerations, supported by statistical analysis of 39 annual flood series (AFS) of Italian basins, suggest that the two-component extreme value (TCEV) distribution can be assumed as a
Flood Frequency Analysis With Historical and Paleoflood Information
An investigation is made of flood quantile estimators which can employ “historical” and paleoflood information in flood frequency analyses. Two categories of historical information are considered:
The statistics of embankment dam failures and accidents
The paper describes the results of a statistical analysis of failures and accidents of embankment dams, specifically concentrating on those incidents involving piping and slope instability. The
Bayesian flood frequency analysis with paleohydrologic bound data
It is valuable to construct likelihood functions that rigorously incorporate measurement errors and annual peak discharge, historical, and paleohydrologic bound information in Bayesian flood
EVALUATION OF THE FLOOD HYDROLOGY IN THE COLORADO FRONT RANGE USING PRECIPITATION, STREAMFLOW, AND PALEOFLOOD DATA FOR THE BIG THOMPSON RIVER BASIN
A multidisciplinary study of precipitation and streamflow data and paleoflood studies of channel features was made to analyze the flood hydrology of foothill and mountain streams in the Front Range
Assessing Cost of Dam Failure
This paper describes the initial phase of an investigation to develop a methodology for estimating the total costs of a dam failure. This methodology takes into account the fundamental issues of
