The development of a simple, accurate hydrograph method is presented. The linearized subhydrographs method utilizes functional relationships between rainfall and runoff. The parameters used in this method include time of concentration and runoff coefficient. Along with functional development, test applications are also examined. In two typical storms applied, time synchronization and rate of runoff predicted are in good agreement with the recorded hydrographs.
