Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Critical Water Issues and Computer Applications


This study develops a method for estimating the risk in reservoir capacity design by applying frequency analysis to the mass curve method. It provides a means for the engineer to use familiar techniques to obtain information about risk for the design of a storage reservoir.
