The paper proposes a semi-probabilistic approach for the design of rainwater tanks. In particular, the cumulative distribution function of the active storage is derived as a function of rainfall moments. The model is validated through continuous simulation of the hydraulic behaviour of a hypothetical rainwater tank located in Milan (North Italy) using as input a series of rainfall records.

Abstract

The paper proposes a semi-probabilistic approach for the design of rainwater tanks. In particular, the cumulative distribution function of the active storage is derived as a function of rainfall moments. The model is validated through continuous simulation of the hydraulic behaviour of a hypothetical rainwater tank located in Milan (North Italy) using as input a series of rainfall records.
