oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Flood studies in South Africa : frequency analysis of peak discharges

Volume 10, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper analysed peak flood discharge data from records of South African rivers at 83 places and established that the country can be conveniently sub-divided into seven regions of reasonably similar mean flood characteristics. Frequency distributions appropriate to peak discharges in each of the regions were set up and the results presented in the form of a co-axial plot to facilitate their application.
