A brief review of the state-of-the-art of urban hydrology results from a drive for a reliable and uncomplicated method for practical application for determining urban runoff. The Linearized Subhydrographs Method is believed to be a useful tool for the design of a new system and the analysis of an existing system. This method employs the principle of mass conservation and very simple parameters and functional relationships; basically, runoff coefficient is used to compute the peak rates of runoff. Along with functional development, test applications are also examined here. In two typical storms where this method was applied, time synchronization and rate of runoff predicted are in good agreement with the recorded hydrographs.
