A stochastic rainfall-runoff model has been developed to generate synthetic series of floods, which are routed through idealised channel-flood plain configurations using a hydraulic flood routing model. Results are presented which show the effect of varying six geometrical parameters which are thought to be important in the transformation of flood frequency curves.
