SYNTHETIC UNIT HYDROGRAPH PROCEDURES IN URBAN HYDROLOGY

Synthetic unit hydrograph procedures provide a convenient means of estimating the increasing stormwater runoff from a catchment that is undergoing urban development. There are two basic approaches to the synthetic unit hydrograph techniques: the "analysis" approach, relating unit hydrograph characteristics directly to catchment parameters and the, "synthesis" aproach, correlating the coefficients of a linear conceptual model with catchment and storm parameters. The application of both these procedures to urban catchments in south-east England has shown that both methods have their advantages but the analysis approach most consistently reproduces the unit hydrographs of these particular catchments.
