Probabilistic Calculation of Design Floods—SPEED

by Olivier Cayla, SOGREAH Ingenierie snc, Echirolles, France,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering Hydrology


The probabilistic calculation of design floods was initiated in the 60s to overcome statistical calculation uncertainties. SPEED takes up and expands this original concept in the form of a coherent system of probabilistic studies of rainfall (regional analysis) and rainfall-runoff relations.
