PROCEEDINGS OF A SYMPOSIUM ON FLOOD HYDROLOGY HELD IN NAIROBI IN OCTOBER, 1975

The purpose of the symposium was to present to engineers, hydrologists and meteorologists working within Tropical Africa, the results of recent research into problems of flood estimation in both urban and rural areas. Papers were presented from both East and West Africa to cover experience and conditions throughout Tropical Africa and covered not only recent research findings, but also current design methods and the needs of the engineer. The symposium was divided into three sections: a rainfall section discussing the rainfall models required as inputs to the flood methods, a rural flood estimation section describing techniques for the design of bridges and culverts in rural highway schemes, and an urban flood estimation section describing techniques for surface water sewer design in towns. These Proceedings include the papers presented at the symposium and a summary of the discussions which followed.
