Unformatted text preview: f c ( t t c ) t = t p = f c ( t p t c ) = P TCA condition #1: TCA condition #2: f c ( t ) dt = P t p t p t c Depending on the particular infltration capacity model chosen (Philip or Green-Ampt), the two TCA conditions (equations) can be solved explicitly for the two unknowns (time to ponding and compression time) to get an explicit expression for the actual infltration: f(t) . See supplementary TCA notes for more details F = f ( t ) t r dt = P t p dt + f c ( t t c ) dt t p t r Q = P f ( t ) t r dt = P f c ( t t c ) dt t p t r = Pt r F From actual infltration model, can compute cumulative infltration and/or infltration excess runo:...
