MARYLAND HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STUDY: VOLUME III - A LINKED SYSTEM MODEL FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF HYDROGRAPHS IN URBAN AREAS

The algorithm developed in this report makes use of the equations for one-dimensional, unsteady, spatially-varied open channel flow and an empirical overland flow mathematical model. The technician or engineer does not need a knowledge of the equations used, since he is required only to describe the physical features of the drainage area and select the hyetograph. The computer automatically develops the hydrograph and returns the values of the discharge at pre-selected time intervals. /FHWA/
