This section describes the computational methodologies employed by Stormwater Studio. It is highly recommended that you review the computational methods and equations used so that you will better understand the output and results. It is not the intention of this section to provide the basis of the theories used or to demonstrate how they were derived. But rather provide the actual equations and methods employed by the software.
Hydraulics & Hydrology
The program uses only widely accepted methods within the industry. Procedures described in HEC-22 Third Edition, HDS-5, TR55 and the Rational method are the primary methodologies. This section will provide a summary of the concepts used but it is not intended to be all-encompassing. Below is a list of publications which provide details on the methods used.
FHA Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 22 Third Edition, 2009
FHWA Hydraulic Design of Culverts (HDS5) Third Edition, 2012
TR-55: Urban Hydrology For Small Watersheds.
