Abstract : This document discusses the application of the kinematic wave routing method in the Flood Hydrograph Package (HEC-1) for analyzing urban runoff processes. The material is presented in two chapters and a comprehensive example. Chapter 1 presents introductory material necessary for an understanding of the theory, assumptions, equations and numerical methods incorporated into HEC-1 for kinematic wave flood routing. The physical processes of the urban runoff and stream flow routing are discussed briefly and related to the kinematic wave capabilities in HEC-1. Chapter 2 explains methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques using HEC-1. Data requirements along with specific methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques to runoff problems in urban hydrology are discussed. The chapters have been prepared so the user can either read one or both. A user interested only in the theory, or only in application procedures, can read the appropriate chapter.
