Short-duration high-intensity rainfall is experienced over many parts of South Africa. It is accordingly important that designers of large buildings pay attention to roof drainage systems. In this paper various aspects of the drainage problem are considered and certain research findings based on hydraulic analyses and laboratory investigations are presented with the aim of assisting designers in their general approach to the problem.
