Abstract

© 2020 The Authors. Flooding can often occur in many places due to the increasing trend of rainfall events (climate change), the urbanization process of a catchment area, or by an undersized urban channel. Reservoirs are used for limiting flooding since they can store an enough water volume. This research presents a practical procedure for sizing off-line reservoirs with an application in urban channels for places with space limitations. A complete formulation is presented, which can be easily used for designers and engineers for computing dimensions of off-line reservoirs. The formulation is applied to a case study located at the Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.
