Procedure for computing flood discharge probability associated with given rainfall-duration-frequency pattern on natural drainage basins, non-channelized overland flow areas, and areas with storm sewer drainage utilizing basin runoff-producing characteristics of area; method utilizes time of concentration concept with unit hydrograph interpretation, but evaluates separately effect of storage and average rainfall-runoff relation.
