Title: A distributed converging overland flow model: 1. Mathematical solutions
Author: Sherman, Bernard; Singh, Vijay P.
Abstract: In models for overland flow based on kinematic wave theory the friction parameter is assumed to be constant. This paper studies a converging geometry and allows continuous spatial variability in the parameter. Parameter variability results in a completely distributed approach, reduces the need to use a complex network model to simulate watershed surface runoff, and saves much computational time and effort. This paper is the first in a series of three. It develops analytical solutions for a converging geometry with no infiltration and temporally constant lateral inflow. Part 2 discusses the effect of infiltration on the runoff process, and part 3 discusses application of the proposed model to natural agricultural watersheds.
