MAXIMUM FLOW IN THE TERPEZITA RIVER DRAINAGE BASIN

ABSTRACT - A statistical and hydrological analysis of the maximum flow in the Terpezița river drainage basin. Starting from the idea that hydrological and hydrometeorological parameters have a statistical existence over time and a spatial distribution that can be represented by an interaction between the mathematical and geographical elements, the present paper aims to analyze the relationship between maximum flows, hourly rains, flow coefficients and concentration times of the Terpezita Basin. This is the second-largest sub-basin (182km2) in the basin of Desnatui, which is located in the SW of Romania and is a first degree tributary of the Danube. The assessment of the concentration time, which involves the sizes of the liquid flow and specific liquid flow, was attained according to the physical and geographical characteristics of the basin. Thus taking into account the homogenous character from this point of view and the existence of statistically established hydrological and pluviometric background, we could outline the behavior of Terpezița River Basin during the extreme hydro-meteorological events. The documentation was completed through an exemplification of previously calculated results, using observations and measurements of the river bed in the vicinity of Terpezita village and processing the values that resulted from the hydro-graph of the 2005 flash-flood.
Key-words: Terpezița River, design storms, maximum flows, spatial and temporal statistical method, flash-flood of 2005.
