PC MODEL BRESSED for Stochastic Prediction of Reservoir Sedimentation
A stochastic flow-storage/sediment-deposition model was written in BASIC with userfriendly features. It is an augmented version of the FORTRAN program RESSED (REServoir SEDimentation)...

Monte Carlo Approach to Spillway Design Floods
This paper shows the use of a daily stochastic streamflow model for the calculation of the hydrograph for spillway design. Most of the literature related to the topic deals with the problem...
