Abstract

An optimization model is presented that can be used in the determination of loss rate functions and unit hydrographs using observed rainfall and runoff data. Composite unit hydrographs and loss rate parameters can be determined by using several multiperiod storms simultaneously or using individual multiperiod storms. The model is a nonlinear programming problem so that a generalized reduced gradient method is used as the solution technique. -from Authors
