Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering

Abstract: A desk-top method is presented for hydraulic design of detention basins. The main objective is to control the flood volume rather than the peak discharge. The method is based on the pre-determined solutions to the usual reservoir routing equation. Orifice-type and weir-type outlet structures are considered.
