  • Highway drainage structures are often located near the confluence of two streams, where the structures may be subjected to inundation by high flows from either stream. These structures must be designed to meet specified performance objectives for floods. Although many tools estimate the probability of flooding on a single stream, there is little guidance for quantifying the probability of flooding on two streams simultaneously, which is a problem of estimating the joint probability of… CONTINUE READING
