Bivariate Rainfall and Runoff Analysis Using Entropy and Copula Theories
(20120924)Multivariate hydrologic frequency analysis has been widely studied using: (1) commonly known joint distributions or copula functions with the assumption of univariate variables being independently identically distributed ... 
Derivation of Furrow Geometry Using Entropy Theory
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2012)The instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) is a commonly used method for computing surface runoff hydrographs from small watersheds. Assuming travel time as a random variable, a general equation for IUH is derived using the ... 
Derivation of Rating Curves Using Entropy Theory
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2010)Using the entropy theory, this study derives the stage‐discharge relation, often called the rating curve, which is based on two simple constraints: (1) the total probability and (2) the mean logarithmic discharge. Parameters ... 
An IUH Equation Based on Entropy Theory
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)The instantaneous unit hydrograph (IUH) is a commonly used method for computing surface runoff hydrographs from small watersheds. Assuming travel time as a random variable, a general equation for IUH is derived using the ... 
Tsallis Entropy Theory for Derivation of Infiltration Equations
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2010)An entropy theory is formulated for deriving infiltration equations for potential rate (or capacity) of infiltration in unsaturated soils. The theory is comprised of five parts: (1) Tsallis entropy, (2) principle of maximum ... 
Tsallis EntropyBased Flow Duration Curve
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2014)The flow duration curve (FDC) is employed for addressing a multitude of problems in water resources engineering, such as prediction of the distribution of future flows, forecasting of future recurrence frequencies, comparison ...
