MARYLAND HIGHWAY DRAINAGE STUDY VOLUME IV - OVER-LAND FLOW ON AREAS SUBJECT TO INFILTRATION LOSSES

The report describes the results of a series of computer simulations of overland flow over pervious surfaces in urban areas. The work was one phase of the development of a mathematical model for the computation of runoff hydrographs in urban areas. This report describes that portion of the overall model concerned with runoff from pervious surfaces. The infiltration abstraction, as described in this paper, is the single most important factor in computing the runoff hydrograph over pervious surfaces. /FHWA/
