RUNOFF ANALYSIS

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of rainfall events for each investigation
  • Description of rainfall characteristics through DDF curves
  • Selection of the most appropriate synthetic hyetograph (polynomial, Chicago, etc.)
  • Characterisation of catchment features (surface, runoff coefficient, etc.)
  • Definition of the most suitable IUH function describing the behaviour of the catchment (Kinematic Wave model, Gamma model, etc.)
  • Computation of flood hydrographs (discharges and volumes) for different storms and return periods
  • Estimation of flooding risk and vulnerable areas
  • Comparison of numerical results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1 and Figure 2 show some typical simulation results.
