Runoff Estimation

What are the factors that affect runoff?


Tr55 cn method l.jpg
TR55 CN Method

  • The SCS has developed a method of determining excess rain based on precipitation depth (P). The model developed by the SCS separates precipitation into three categories:

  • Q - Direct runoff (excess rain) This is the depth (in) of rain that shows up as runoff.

  • F - Actual retention. This is the depth (in) of the abstraction

  • Ia - Initial abstraction This is the depth (in) of rain that must fall before runoff starts.


Scs runoff equation l.jpg
SCS Runoff Equation

  • Where Q = runoff (in)

  • P = rainfall (in)

  • S = potential maximum retention after runoff begins (in) and

  • Ia = initial abstraction (in)

  • S is related to the soil cover conditions of the watershed through the CN.

  • CN has a range of 0 to 100

  • The ultimate total retention, S, and the initial abstraction, Ia, are assumed to be dependent on the following properties of the drainage basin:

    • Land use

    • Soil Type: A, B, C, D

      • Soil group A – Well drained sand or gravel, high infiltration rate

      • Soil group B – Moderately well drained soil, moderate infiltration rate, with fine to moderately coarse texture

      • Soil group C – Slow infiltration rate, moderate to fine texture

      • Soil group D – Very slow infiltration, mainly clay material, relatively impervious

    • Hydrologic condition – good/fair/poor (rural land use only)

    • Antecedent moisture condition (AMC)

      • AMC I – Dry soil

      • AMC II – Average soil moisture

      • AMC III – Wet soil
