Runoff estimates both peaks and volumes are called for in design analysis for the sizing of a wide range of engineering structures. In many instances runoff records are very short or not available and it is necessary to use synthetic rainfall data and apply a rainfall/runoff model to estimate appropriate design hydrographs. This thesis addresses the particular portion of the rainfall/runoff process conversion dealing with the development of excess hyetographs prior to catchment routing and the estimation of the parameters affecting such development. Details are given on field based parameter estimating procedures as well as further model development to better reflect measurable input parameters. A joint probability model linking moisture deficiency criteria prior to an event, rainfall data and measured catchment parameters is developed and applied on Canberra data.
