Study of the water budget of streets: experimentation and modelling

D. Ramier, E. Berthier & H. Andrieu
The study of two stretches of street during 38 months allowed to analyze the hydrological behavior of streets during rain events. The results show that runoff coefficients are very variable and runoff losses may be important. In order to better understand this behavior, a physical based model is used. This model, BiL, combine a porous media flow module with a surface runoff module. The lateral runoff transfer in the lateral gutter is approximated by the...
