On the Clark Unit Hydrograph Model of HEC-HMS

  • József Szilágyi

Abstract

A mathematically correct form of the linear storage element’s routing equation is specified requiring only a slight modification of the existing HEC-HMS routine. The new formulation, unlike the current version in use, is unconditionally stable as long as the time step and the storage coefficient values are trivially specified as positive numbers.

Keywords: linear storage element, unit hydrograph, Muskingum method
