Several types of techniques for the prediction of the stage-discharge relationship and the velocity distribution-discharge relationship are presented, along with general limitations and site imposed constraints pertaining to each type of simulation technique. Data requirements and precision specifications are provided, as well as guidelines for efficient data collection. The appendices include data collection procedures, methods for collecting hydraulic data in large rivers, the needed equipment, and information on several computer programs for hydraulic simulation.
