A.N.A Schellart, W.J. Shepherd, A.J. Saul, Influence of rainfall estimation error and spatial variability on sewer flow prediction at a small urban scale


This paper describes a detailed study based on a small (11 km2) urban catchment in West Yorkshire, England. Radar and rain gauge data have been compared and used as the input to hydrodynamic sewer flow simulations, and the results of these simulations have been compared with measured flows in the sewer system.
