flood routing

[′fləd ‚rüd·iŋ]
(hydrology)
The process of computing the progressive time and shape of a flood wave at successive points along a river. Also known as storage routing; streamflow routing.

Using these and the flood hydrographs, we can obtain [N.sub.A] and [N.sub.B] highest water levels in front of the dam according to the reservoir dispatching rules for flood routing through the reservoir.
Flood hydraulic modelling and floodplain mapping was integrated to perform flood routing for the computation of peak flow attenuation, assessment of lag time between inflow and out flow and to perform mapping for the estimation of flood zone depth and flooded area of reach.
Flood routing is important in the design of flood protection measures in order to estimate how the proposed measures will affect the behavior of flood waves in rivers so that adequate protection and economic solutions can be found [1].
In this research, flood routing in Maroon Rivers has been done by using two software, HEC-RAS and MIKE11 models.
Chapters discuss dam failure, laboratory experiments, dam-break wave routing, dam-break flood routing, dam-break flow against obstacles and through river bed singularities, dam break risk management and hazard mitigation, economic evaluation of dams for flood protection, and case histories from around the world.
However, application of the model would be the best when it is applied to the natural flood routing. In this study, it is recommended that the impact from changing land use and activities on the catchments and the impact of control structures in channel should be comprehensively studies in the future.
Flood routing is the process of determining the time-varying flows, stages, and storage for the system in response to an inflow hydrograph.

Among specific topics are energy and momentum principles, computing uniform flow, spatially varied flow, hydraulic jump and its use as energy dissipater, and flood routing.
The authors concentrate on the practical development and application of computer-based algorithms rather than mathematical theories, covering the basics of hydro-environmental systems and give readers the governing equations and main solution techniques to mathematical models , computer modeling of hydrodynamics and pollutants transport in open channel flow domains, underground flow systems including coupled free and porous types, and computer simulations in flood routing, estuarine hydrodynamics, solute transport and effluent discharge policies.
