A method for synthesizing overland flow hydrographs using a high-speed digital computer is presented. The parameters of the flow equations are individually varied and the resulting hydrographs shown. These hydrographs are then used to produce a single dimensionless hydrograph and a general relation for time to equilibrium flow, from which the hydrograph for any combination of parameters encountered in this study may be constructed.
