Abstract

"Computer simulation of overland flow requires a mathematical model which converges to a true solution. This paper presents a method, based on measurable physical parameters, which insures convergence of a fixed grid explicit numerical solution. Analysis of a wide range of overland flow plane parameters has resulted in an equation of the form Δt = 0. 2 ΔX/So, for the time step increment. This equation provides values for Δt that will insure stability and convergence of the fixed grid explicit numerical method of solving the spatially varied unsteady flow equations. The effect of subarea shape on the rising limb of the overland flow hydrograph is presented for three different configurations. The relative influence of boundary conditions and equation simplifications is discussed. This paper presents an explicit, computer solved, mathematical model that is capable of reproducing the overland flow hydrograph"--Abstract, page ii.
