Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


In this paper, a flood routing scheme, which gives consideration to the advantages of both the Muskingum method and the unit hydrograph method, is derived by using the continuity equation with first-order increments, and it has been proved that the scheme has a higher accuracy than the Muskingum method by using the observed data to test.
