Abstract:

The Air Force Runoff Model AFRUM is a stormwater runoff simulation model designed to predict stormwater flow and quality resulting from real or design storms for small watersheds generally limited to 2,000 acres or less. The principal model inputs are watershed area, land use characteristics, percent forested, percent impervious, and percent denuded. The input will also include either an observed hydrograph or an estimated Soil Conservation Service Curve Number CN. The model is based upon 410 storms in 36 watersheds. Output is both tabular and graphical and provides the watershed hydrograph, pollutograph, and discussion of model assumptions. This report provides a background of the model, batch user instructions for CDC 6600 computers, and two example problems. The complete software package is provided in the Appendix. Author
