Abstract: The Colorado Unit Hydrograph Procedure (CUHP) consists of effective rainfall reduction and hydrograph convolution processes. The primary assumption is an one-to-one response between rainfall and runoff. In 1985, the main frame computer model of CUHP was converted to an IBM personal computer version, CUHP-pc. This version further incorporated the rational method into runoff computations to extend the application range of CUHP down to 10 acres. This paper summarizes the capabilities, hardware requirements and sensitivity of the computer program CUHP-pc.
