Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1958, Vol. 84, Issue 2, Pg. 1-14

Document Type: Journal Paper


Graphical techniques for routing directly on plotted hydrograph charts discussed for case of simple, linear storage discharge function, Muskingum equation, linear storage function in conjunction with constant lag (translation), and case of both lag and storage factor varying as complex functions of flow in reach.
