The unit peak discharge (qu) is obtained from figure 17
depending on the rainfall type. Figure 15 shows the
approximate geographic boundaries for the four
rainfall distributions. Tc and Ia/P values are needed to
obtain a value for qu from the exhibit. The peak dis-
charge (qp in ft3/s) is computed as the product of the
unit peak discharge (qu in ft3/s/ac-in), the drainage
area (A in acres), and the runoff (Q in inches).
