Abstract

In this paper, Rosenblueth's point-estimate is applied to the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) alluvial fan method to compute the mean and standard deviation for the 100-year discharge at any point on the fan and the mean and standard deviation for the fan arc width. The proposed methodology is applied to an alluvial fan in north Scottsdale, Arizona.
