Design flood estimation is an important task that is required in the planning and design of many civil engineering projects. In this study, the flood records of more than 23 gauged river basins in Sarawak, Malaysia, are examined using an index-flood estimation procedure based on L-moments. Two homogeneous regions were identified and the Generalized Extreme Value and the Generalized Logistic distributions are found to describe the distribution of extreme flood events appropriately within the… CONTINUE READING
