AbstractA two-component linear model to compute runoff hydrograph on an urban watershed is developed. The method is based on a linear reservoir approach and considers the rainfall-runoff processes separately for the impervious and for the pervious parts of the watershed, before combining them to obtain the total hydrograph. Methods of determining model parameters are discussed and the effects of increased urbanization examined. Included in this thesis are a description of the theoretical development of the model, the verification of the model by its application to Arcadia Watershed, and the computer program that describes the computation in the model.
