Guidance for design flood estimation is provided in Australian Rainfall and Runoff. Since the last edition in 1987 there has been development and increasing application of stochastic simulation approaches for design flood estimation. There has been associated improved information and more sophisticated treatment of inputs such as design rainfalls, areal reduction factors, losses, baseflow and initial contents of reservoirs. A significant development has been the recent release of the new IFD estimates from the Bureau of Meteorology. The session will cover improved approaches to design flood estimation such as Mont-Carlo analysis and the characterisation of inputs.
