UHG is a hydrograph for a unit volume of excess rainfall for a given storm duration. For example in SI units, UHG is a hydrograph for 1 cm of rainfall on a given watershed for a given storm duration. Three principles for UHG method 1. For the same duration of rainfall, the runoff duration is same irrespective of the difference in the intensity (Fig. 7.10). 2. The runoff ordinates are in the same proportions with the intensities of the rainfall. That is, n times as much rain in a given time will produce a hydrograph with ordinates n times as large (Fig. 7.10). 3. The principle of superposition is valid (Fig. 7.11)

Example: The gross rainfall was 14mm for a storm of 3 hour duration on a

watershed having 13.6 km2 area. The index for the catchment is estimated to be 1.3 mm/h. Derive the UHG for this catchment from the direct runoff data given below:

Time(h) DRO(m3/s) 0 0 1 1.8 2 6.1 3 8.4 4 6.5 5 5.2 6 4.0 7 3.0 8 2.2 9 1.6 10 1.1 11 0.7 12 0.4 13 0.2 14 0.1 15 0

Example 7.4.1 Find the half-hour unit hydrograph using the excess rainfall hyetograph and direct runoff hydrograph given in Table 7.4.2 (these were derived in Example 5.3.1)

The UHG is

Q1 = PU1 = 2.00 404 = 808 cfs 1 Q2 = PU 2 + P2U1 = 2.00 1079 + 3.00 404 = 3370 cfs 1

and so on.

As can be observed the value of the rd is equal to the amount of excess rainfall (6 in). Synthetic UHG Three types of synthetic UHG 1. Relating hydrograph characteristics to watershed characteristics 2. Based on dimensionless UHG 3. Based on models of watershed storage Snyders Synthetic UHG Based on the study in U.S. for areas of 30 to 30,000 km2

To compute Ct and Cp for a gaged watershed, the values of L and Lc are measured from the basin map. From a derived UHG of the watershed, obtain the effective duration tR in hours, basin lag tpR in hours and qpR in m3/s.km2. If t pR = 5.5t R then t R = tr and q pR = q p And Ct and Cp can be computed from Eq. 7.7.2 and 7.7.3

If t pR

5.5t R then t p = t pR +

tr t R 4

(7.7.4)

coefficients are found from 7.7.2 and 7.7.3 with q pR = q p and t pR 3. The peak discharge in m3/s.km2 for the required UHG

And 7.7.1 and 7.7.4 are solved simultaneously for tr and tp and the

4. The base time in hours, assuming a triangular shape for the UHG,

C3 q pR

where,

W = Cw q 1.08 pR

For 75% width

Cw = 1.22 (SI), 440 (English ) For 50% width Cw = 2.14 (SI), 770 ( English )

Usually on-third of this width is distributed before the UHG peak time and two-thirds after the peak. Example 7.7.1 Example 7.7.2

78

For given peak discharge and lag time for the duration of the excess rainfall, the UHG can be estimated from the synthetic dimensionless hydrograph for the given watershed. SCS provides a hydrograph of this type as Fig. 7.7.4 (a). For the area of the UHG to be unity, we may show that

qp =

CA Tp

where peak discharge is in m3/s.cm (cfs/in in English units), time in hours and area A in square kilometers (square miles in English units). Further it is given that, the basin lag

t p = 0.6Tc

tr Tp = + t p 2

Example 7.7.3

79

UHGs for different rainfall durations S-Hydrograph is that resulting from a continuous excess rainfall at a constant rate of 1cm/h (or 1 in/h) for an indefinite period.

h(t ) = UHG ordinates for duration t h(t t ) = UHG ordinates for duration t lagged by t g (t ) = t (Sum of UHG ordinates lagged by t ) = S-hydrograph ordinates for t g (t t ) = S-hydrograph ordinates lagged by the new duration t

Example: 7.8.1 Use the 0.5-h unit hydrograph in Table 7.4.3 to produce the S-hydrograph and the 1.5-h unit hydrograph for the watershed.
