|Keyword(s)||A need is expressed for dimensionless unit hydrographs which account for catchment shape and topography, as well as for rainfall intensity. Such hydrographs were previously derived by the authors for a variety of catchment shapes and configurations using kinematic theory. Dimensionless equations are derived for planes, converging surfaces and V-shaped catchments with streams. Numerical methods are employed to model runoff for various loss ratios and the results are presented in the form of dimensionless hydrographs. An example demonstrates the application of the hydrographs.|
