In this diploma work the analysis of flood waves along the Sava river is discussed. In the introductory
part of the thesis floods are presented, and also their characteristics, characteristics of floods in
Slovenia and flood protection measures.
In the following part hydrogeological, hydrographical and meteorological characteristisc of the Sava
river basin are presented. Then the water gauging stations are described and our choice of water
gauging stations for the analysis is depicted. Further, a program Hidrolog is presented which helped us
to get hydrological data needed. Acquired hydrological data are data of dates of flood peak discharges
and data of discharges at individual water gauging stations. These hydrological data were required to
show travelling of flood peak discharges on the Sava river and its main tributaries in graphical and
In the diploma work the average times of flood peak discharges on the Sava river were calculated and
the following conclusions were reached. Time traveling is increasing with the distance of water
gauging stations downstream the Sava river. At water gauging station Medno there was a negative
value, the reason is Hydroelectric Power Station Medvode. We found out, that the average flood wave
of the Sava river travel from Jesenice to Radovljica 3,7 h, to Šentjakob 9,2 h, to Litija 15,1 h, to
Hrastnik 17,4 h and to Čatež 23,5 h.
