Abstract:

The computer program Streamflow routing Optimization OPROUT was developed at the Hydrologic Engineering Center HEC by Vernon R. Bonner. The program consists of optimization routines developed originally by Dr. Anthony Slocum and Ramesk Danekar of Anderson-Nichols and Company, Inc., as a portion of HEC contract, Evaluation of Streamflow Routing Techniques with Special Emphasis on Determining Nonlinear Routing Criteria, October 1975, Contract No. DACWO5-75-C-0027. These routines were linked with routing and plotting routines from the computer program HEC-5, Simulation of flood Control and Conservation Systems, into one program, OPROUT, which this manual describes. This program can be used to determine modified Puls or Muskingum routing criteria by optimizing parameters for a single reach using observed upstream and downstream hydrographs for one to five events. The main advantage to the program is that the user can develop routing criteria from several events by making one computer program execution.
