WINFAP - HYDROLOGICAL FREQUENCY ANALYSIS PACKAGE
1. Purpose and objectives
To analyse a set of annual maximum flood measurements for a site and predict flood size and frequency.
WINFAP is a software package designed for use by hydrologists,
planners and consulting engineers concerned with flood risk assessment and flood alleviation. It can be used to analyse a set of annual maximum flood
records, and estimate both the size and frequencies of occurrence of floods
Statistically WINFAP can use and amend stored information about annual
maximum event data in order to estimate: the probable frequency of a particular annual maximum event recurring within a specified period; the
probable magnitude of an event for a particular return period; the probable
WINFAP uses distribution and fitting methods that have proven to be particularly suitable in hydrology, and these are described and discussed in the manual. The user can study the sensitivity of estimates to both observations and choice of method.
Analysis results can be shown as a frequency plot, a table or a histogram, on the PC screen or output to a wide range of printers and plotters.
