STUDY OF FOOD HYDROGRAPHS FOR SMALL DRAINAGE BASINS IN WYOMING

AN ASSESSMENT IS PRESENTED OF THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE RESULTS TO DATA ARE LEADING TO SUCCESS IN MEETING THE STUDY OBJECTIVES OF DEFINING FLOOD PEAKS FROM SMALL WATERSHEDS, DEFINING THE CHARACTERISTICS SHAPE OF FLOOD HYDROGRAPHS IN RELATION TO PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BASIN, AND OF DEVELOPING THE EFFECT OF HYDROGRAPH SHAPE UPON THE DEGREE OF REDUCTION OF CULVERT CAPACITY TO BE MADE FEASIBLE BY STORAGE OF WATER IN THE POND UPSTREAM FROM THE HIGHWAY EMBANKMENT. THE DIMENSIONLESS HYDROGRAPHS DEVELOPED TO DATE REQUIRED USE OF ALL THE AVAILABLE DATA. THEREFORE CONFIRMATION MUST BE MADE WITH FUTURE FLOOD DATA AND NO CONCLUSIONS ARE STATED IN THE REPORT. AT PRESENT, WATERSHED CHARACTERISTICS HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED AS PARAMETERS INFLUENCING THE SHAPE OF THE HYDROGRAPH. /BPR/
