||Dynamic simulation techniques can provide urban water planners with needed hydrologic response information. Such techniques for modeling the interactions between a storm bounded by a generalized polygon, and any arbitrarily distributed network over which the storm passes are described and demonstrated. A simulator for the hydrologic response of any encoded channel network has been designed and implemented in FORTRAN. The network is represented by a binary tree structure within which the topologic connections, geometric and other attributes of its segments can be introduced, altered, and retrieved by a set of programmed functions. The comprehensive computer package can model either the behavior of existing drainage systems or the expected performance changes from modification of drainage systems.
