Parameter Estimation for Log-Pearson Type III Distribution by Pome
The principle of maximum entropy (POME) is employed to derive an alternative method of parameter estimation for the log-Pearson type (LPT) III distribution. Historical flood data are used to evaluate this method and compare ...
Application of Kinematic Wave Equations to Border Irrigation Design
(The British Society for Research in Agricultural Engineering, 1985)
Accuracy of the kinematic wave (KW) approximation was tested on 31 experimental irrigation borders by computing the KW number and its modified version. In a majority of cases. This approximation was found to be sufficiently ...
Analysis of Nonlinear Muskingum Flood Routing
The three-parameter nonlinear Muskingum method for flood routing is analyzed. Analytical solutions for simplifying cases and approximate integral solutions for general cases are derived. Its accuracy depends mainly on the ...
Analysis of Gradual Earth-Dam Failure
Analytical models are developed for the simulation of earth-dam breach erosion. Using a reservoir water-mass depletion equation, broad-crested weir hydraulics and a breach-erosion relation, solutions ae derived for ...
A kinematic model for surface irrigation: Verification by experimental data
(American Geophysical Union, 1983-12)
A kinematic model for surface irrigation is verified by experimental data obtained for 31 borders. These borders are of varied characteristics. Calculated values of advance times, water surface profiles when water reaches ...
A kinematic model for surface irrigation: An extension
(American Geophysical Union, 1982-06)
The kinematic model for surface irrigation, reported previously by Sherman and Singh (1978), is extended. Depending upon the duration of irrigation and time variability of infiltration, three cases are distinguished. ...
