This paper presents comparison of hypothetical flood wave simulation method for ungauged catchments developed at Division of Hydrology, Cracow University of Technology, with results calculated for measured data in gauged cross-sections using method developed at Institute of Water Engineering and Water Management, Cracow University of Technology. Three gauged catchments were analysed: Prądnik, Żabniczanka and Żylica.
