Abstract

The field data of flood flows for several streams were analyzed to determine the distribution of flow in the main channel and in the flood plains. The discharge carrying capacity of flood plains was found to vary from a few percent to more than 80% of the total flow. The carrying capacity of flood plains depends upon many factors including the nature of the flood plain and the main channel, and the flood frequency. -from ASCE Publications Abstracts
