Experimental investigation of small watershed floods: completion report
An outdoor experimental rainfall-runoff facility was constructed at Colorado State University. Initially the watershed consisted of a conic section having an interior angle of 120°, a radius of 110 feet and a uniform slope of 5%. The surface of the watershed was stabilized by covering with a sheet of butyl rubber. The rainfall is simulated by overlapping sets of rainfall patterns from 164 sprinkler heads set at 10 feet above the surface of the watershed, Rainfall intensities of approximately 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0 inches per hour can be produced by utilizing various combinations of sprinkler ...
