SIMULATION OF THE INLET HYDROGRAPH FOR URBAN CATCHMENTS

A single nonlinear reservoir model is proposed as a realistic routing method for the above-ground phase of urban runoff. The use of the model is demonstrated on data collected from two very small (less than 1 ha) suburban catchments instrumented for this purpose. The shape of observed hydrographs is modelled satisfactorily using a nonlinear exponent of 2/3 and fitted routing constants. /Author/
