CEE 3804: Computer Applications in Civil Engineering Spring 2011 Assignment 6: Matlab Functions Date Due: April 5, 2011 Instructor: Trani Problem 1 A civil engineer is designing a rainstorm water management system for a shopping mall. During a severe thunderstorm, the water runoff generated by the large parking lot at the shopping mall is given by the function: runoff = k 2 + k 1 sin( t / k 3 ) e ( t / k 4 ) Where runoff is the runoff volume (cubic meters per second) generated by the parking lot, t is the time (in seconds) after the thunderstorm starts and k 1 through k 4 are parameters of the runoff function. Task 1 Create a Matlab function to calculate the runoff for a given value of time t. As part of the input variables to the function runoff, include the four input parameters k1 through k4 for a 100 year storm with numerical values as follows: k1 = 50; k2 = 2; k3 = 1500; k4 = 800; Task 2 Create a Matlab script to call the function created in Task 1. Test the function for values of time (t) starting at t=0 and ending at t=4500 seconds. Plot the runoff as a function of time. Label appropriately.
