NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF THE NON-LINEAR MUSKINGUM METHOD
1. Purpose and objectives
Flood routing by the Muskingum method. This component takes into account the change of velocity due to discharge, and the method is reformulated as a non-linear problem which is solved using a computer program.
The inflow hydrograph is known and the outflow discharge is to be obtained. Four parameters are introduced to define how the values of
Muskingum's K and x are related to discharge. All these parameters can be
determined from the hydraulic properties of the channel.
Inflow and outflow hydrographs of the channel.
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
The user should be familiar with the basic theory of the method.
6. Form of presentation
Manual in English, printed listing of program and floppy diskette.
7. Operational experience
It has been applied successfully in different river reaches in China.
8. Originator and technical support
Zhao Ren-jun and Wang Pei-len, Hohai University, Nanjing, China
10. Conditions on use
Cost of reproduction and mailing.
