This document discusses the application of the kinematic wave routing method in HEC-1 for analyzing urban runoff processes. The physical processes of the urban runoff and streamflow routing are discussed briefly and related to the kinematic wave capabilities in the HEC-1 Flood Hydrograph Package. Date requirements along with specific methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques to runoff problems in urban hydrology and example applications of the method to analyze typical problems are discussed. Chapter 1 presents introductory material necessary for an understanding of the theory, assumptions, equations and numerical methods incorporated into HEC-1 for kinematic wave flood routing. Chapter 2 explain methods of applying kinematic wave routing techniques using HEC-1. An example problem is presented to illustrate HEC-1 input and output data, and effects of changes to numerical values of the parameters are discussed. Results of a hand calculation are given in Appendix A to illustrate the basic solution procedure. Author
