Modeling flow through tile networks

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A distributed, physically-based flow model has been developed to specifically address the influence of irregular tile networks on Midwestern watershed hydrology. The tile system is modeled as a network of links and nodes that are connected to the streams in the watershed. Water that is drained by individual tile lines is routed through the network using the kinematic wave approximation to yield transient response to precipitation. The paper discusses issues encountered in modeling the tile drainage system and presents the application of the model to the Upper Little Vermilion River watershed in east central Illinois.
