Abstract : The report is volume 5 of a 12-volume report prepared by The Hydrologic Engineering Center as a part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' contribution to the International Hydrological Decade. Techniques and procedures for synthesizing hypothetical rainfall-snowmelt-runoff events are discussed. Standard Project and Probable Maximum floods simulation are discussed as used by the Corps of Engineers in the United States. Storm centering, use of rainfall frequency data, balanced hydrographs and several computer programs are discussed. Examples and illustrations are included. The following computer programs are included as appendices: (1) Unit Hydrograph and Hydrograph Computation Computer Program; (2) Hydrograph Combining and Routing Computer Program; (3) Balanced Hydrograph Computer Program; and (4) Streamflow Routing Optimization Computer Program.
