Hysteresis-Based Flood Wave Analysis

Publication: Journal of Hydrologic Engineering
Volume 4, Issue 4

Abstract

By employing looped or hysteretic rating curves, flood wave propagation in natural and artificial channels is analytically described. The analytical relation between a quantitative descriptor of hysteresis η and phase difference ϕ is verified using numerical and observed data, and a unique relationship among η, ϕ, and logarithmic decrement δ is presented for kinematic waves. Finally, the effect of channel and input flood wave characteristics as well as downstream boundary conditions on flood wave propagation is evaluated.
