WINFAP 5 enables you to estimate peak flows and flood frequency curves for gauged and ungauged catchments, using the latest Flood Estimation Handbook (FEH) methods.
At an ungauged site you can automatically create a pooling group of similar gauged sites based on comparison of FEH Web Service catchment descriptors.
At a gauged site you can apply flood frequency analysis techniques to gauged annual maximum and/or peaks-over-threshold flood peak data where available. Flood frequency curves are created by analysis of the pooling group flood peak data.
WINFAP 5 was developed by WHS to implement a range of the industry-standard FEH statistical analysis tools. It uses the latest FEH methods to provide estimates of peak flows and flood frequency curves for gauged and ungauged catchments.

WINFAP is available on an annual subscription, activated online with a serial number. It can be licensed either for standalone/single PC use, or as a multi user/network licence through our reseller Jacobs. See Licensing for details.
If you would like to purchase a multi user/network WINFAP licence visit our reseller Jacobs here.
WINFAP 5 uses the new NRFA Peak Flow catchment descriptor xml files, and has improved data auditing functionality. WINFAP 5 does not support old Peak Flow Datasets (version 9 and earlier) nor WINFAP 4 project files (.feh4). To allow continued use for existing studies, the legacy WINFAP 4 can be installed alongside WINFAP 5 and we currently issue WINFAP 4 serial numbers with each WINFAP 5 purchase.
