- A decision support tool (STORMKIT) for stormwater system analysis and design
- Imteaz, M. A.; Rauf, M. A.
- An interactive, user-friendly decision support tool was developed, which will provide realistic results for stormwater system analysis & design with minimum data and without the need for specialist knowledge. This tool will overcome the use of either solving rigorous complex equations by tedious trial & error attempts or complex computer models for stormwater practitioners. Use of manual trial & error method is time consuming. On the other hand available computer models are expensive and require huge data. The developed tool is able to produce design rainfall for any specific return period and any time duration. Then it calculates time of concentration (using kinematic wave method) and runoff for a certain catchment. Different types of stormwater pit inlet capacities can be analysed through another window. Next window will analyse different types of pipe flow capacities. Eventually, channel flows and velocities can be analysed for nine different types of regular and irregular shaped channels.
