Published in: Water and Energy International
Abstract: Flood quantiles, are required for the safe and economical design of various hydraulic structures such as dams, weirs and bridges, etc. A large number of technique are in vogue for estimation of flood quantiles of a particular return period. These techniques give different results when applied to a common data set. Such results cannot of themselves provide any information on which of the methods is the best. Estimators can be best compared on the basis of their performance on randomly drawn samples from known statistical populations (the parents) for which the true values of quantiles are known. Such an attempt has been made in this paper for judging the performance of different flood estimation techniques on randomly drawn samples from eight flood like Wakeby parents.
