Overland flow is a major component in any runoff event where the cultural practices significantly affect the watershed runoff hydrograph. A model based on the kinematic flow theory is proposed that satisfactorily predicts overland flow on very rough, short slopes. The model includes retention storage, provisions for a variable point-infiltration rate and a variable coefficient of friction, the ‘drying up’ of the upstream end of the slope during recession, and a variable area infiltration rate… CONTINUE READING
