The hydraulic behaviour of compound channels is made complex by the interactions between main channel and floodplain flows. Oversimplified analysis can result in large errors in estimates of carrying capacities or flood levels. In this paper existing discharge computation methods were reviewed and new techniques were presented that were consistently more reliable than those in current use.
