Abstract

Storage facilities are key devices in mitigating the urban drainage impact on receiving water bodies, but their design is still affected by high uncertainty. The analytical-probabilistic approach has recently raised interest, because the facility performances are directly related to probability. Starting from statistically independent storm events, distributions of the meteorological variables must be fitted. Rainfall series, recorded in three Italian raingauges, were examined for appraising two main concerns: the choice of proper probability distributions for rainfall volume and the sample sensitivity with respect to the analysis criterion. The analytical derivation of the model is then finally discussed.
