Abstract
Estimates of the peak discharges from catchments are required for the economic design of bridges and culverts on rural roads. However, Flow measurements are sparse from small catchments in East Africa, so that design methods must frequently be based on rainfall Data, which are more readily available, and catchment characteristics. This paper describes a programme of research designed to develop a suitable flood model; the programme was run jointly by the Kenya Water Department, the Uganda Water Development Department and the UK Transport and Road Research Laboratory.
