Abstract : EAD performs damage computations required in the economic evaluation of flood plain management plans which can be part of multipurpose water resource development. The program can be applied during preliminary plan formulation studies as well as for detailed plan analysis wherein detailed benefit calculations are needed. EAD can compute: the damage for a specific flood event, the expected annual damage for one or more years, and the equivalent annual damage for a stated interest rate and period of analysis. EAD requires for each index location and plan alternative to be evaluated the hydrologic relationships of exceedance frequency and corresponding flow or elevation and, if required, elevation versus flow and the economic relationship of elevation versus damage for each appropriate damage category...Software Description: The program is written in FORTRAN for implementation on IBM-PC/XT microcomputers using the MS/PC DOS 2.1 (or higher) operating system. Minimum of 640k bytes of core storage required.
