Q = design peak runoff in m3/s i = rainfall intensity for
for a given recurrence interval design recurrence interval
(e.g. 10, 50 or 100 yrs) and for a duration =

A = watershed area
Flood Engineering
Flood Engineering
River CROSS-SECTIONS are
engineered in such a way in
can carry Flood Discharges
with return period.
Flood Engineering
Example
Determine the required river cross-
section area at Point 4 and 5 if the
design mean velocity in the river is 2.2
m/s for a 50 year return period flood.
Note: watershed runoff coefficient is 0.75
in Ilo-ilo City.
Hint: determine first the peak discharge
using the model below

Exercise
Determine the 50-year return period peak runoff rate (m3/s) for the
given figure at different points along the river as drainage in Ilocos
Norte (watershed runoff coefficient of 0.8). The slope in the entire
watershed is uniform at 0.006. Flow lengths are A=2.5km, B=5.5km,
C=3.5km, D=2.5km.
Determine the river cross-section area for each point (1, 2, and 3) so
that a velocity of 2 m/s is maintained during 50-year return period
peak flood flow.
