 Flood

is one of the worst natural disasters that causes significant damage to infrastructure, services and agriculture plus the loss of valuable lives.
 To

minimize the future flood damage, the magnitude of floods that is likely to be exceeded in a project’s lifetime need to be estimated with sufficient accuracy

 Regional

flood estimation methods are used for estimation of design floods in ungauged catchments, which is required in the design of culverts, small to medium sized bridges, causeways, farm dams, soil conservation works and many other water resources management tasks.

provides vital information for the planning and designing of many hydraulic structures and for risk assessment in flood plain use useful statistical relationships for the transfer of flood frequency information from one river basin to another within the same homogeneous region

 Provide

 to

stabilize site-specific estimates based on limited data

 is

to estimate a flood magnitude (Q) corresponding to any required return period (T) of occurrence

 area

is divided into disjoint regions and a dimensionless flood frequency relationship is derived separately for each. Flood quantiles for ungaged or poorly gaged drainage basins may be estimated by assigning the basin to its appropriate region
quantiles

 'Regions'

may be contiguous geographical areas of land or areas of a space defined by the physical characteristics of gaged basins  regions are located in the intense-rainfall  flood-prone areas with one of the highest frequencies of tropical cyclone passage

 Method  The

of Moments

moments of annual flood data, {Qk , k=1,2, 3,…n}, are estimated as follows: Qmean = (1/n) Σ Qk (1)

 Mean:

 Standard Deviation: Qmean) 2 ] 1/2 (2)  Coefficient

S = [ 1/(n-1) Σ (Qk -

of Variation: Cv = S/Qmean (3)

 Skewness Coefficient: (Qk - Qmean) 3 / S3

Gs = n/[(n-1)(n-2)] Σ
