The FEH Rainfall Runoff Method Boundary (FEHBDY) derives an inflow hydrograph from a catchment or subcatchment. The hydrograph then becomes a boundary condition equivalent to a Flow Time Boundary. Alternatively, the rainfall component of the FEH Boundary can be used as a direct rainfall boundary (equivalent to a REBDY), when used in conjunction with a Lateral Inflow unit, by selecting the 'Hyetograph' Boundary Type Option.
Theory and Guidance
Introduction
The FEH Boundary is a rainfallrunoff model based on procedures described in the Flood Estimation Handbook (1999). It is essential that users of the FEH Boundary are fully conversant with the appropriate parts of the Flood Estimation Handbook  neither the software nor this documentation fully reproduce the guidance or definition of the methods presented in the Handbook. In particular, Volumes 1 and 4 of the Handbook include important guidance on the choice of methods for flood frequency estimates and on restrictions in the applicability of the methods. For example, design flow hydrographs produced by the FEH rainfallrunoff method can be highly inaccurate if parameter estimation is based solely on catchment descriptors.
For uptodate information on the Flood Estimation Handbook please visit the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology website.
The FEH Boundary is designed to be flexible so that the components of the rainfallrunoff model (such as baseflow, percentage runoff, unit hydrograph) can either be estimated from the catchment descriptors or can be directly provided based on event data (usually the preferred option). In addition, the generated flow hydrographs can be scaled to match the flood peak obtained by the FEH statistical methods.
The rainfallrunoff model is based on unit hydrograph (UH) theory. For the required location, effective rainfall is transformed into a runoff hydrograph by convolution with the unit hydrograph. Please refer to Volume 4 of the FEH or standard hydrology texts for general details of unit hydrograph theory.
In the absence of flood event data, the parameters of the FEH rainfallrunoff model can be estimated from catchment descriptors. These catchment descriptors and the parameters of the rainfall frequency model can be obtained from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology website and/or the FEH CDROM (if appropriate). A facility exists within Flood Modeller to import all relevant catchment descriptors and rainfall parameters from the standard FEH CDROM CSV (comma separated variable) output file.
The hydrograph produced by the FEH Boundary can be checked prior to use by either clicking on the 'Calculated hydrograph' tab in the FEHBDY properties dialog in the Flood Modeller interface, or by running a 'Boundary mode' simulation. A summary of the input data and rainfallrunoff component values is written to an ASCII file with the extension '.zzb'. The hydrograph and mass balance is tabulated in an ASCII file with the extension 'zzh'. When a boundary mode run has been undertaken, the hydrographs at all hydrological boundaries can be viewed (and compared) using the Flood Modeller Interface time series feature.
You can generate a datafile with:
 only one FEHBDY node
 many FEHBDY nodes each representing versions of the same catchment (eg different return periods or model component options)
 many FEHBDY nodes each representing different subcatchments, optionally linked to additional Flood Modeller units such as MuskingumCunge routing units, hydrodynamic river sections, reservoirs/ponds, structures, junctions etc.
The FEHBDY unit contains a number of options to control the method of calculation. Within the Flood Modeller ASCII data file, these options are referred to in the form xxFLAG (e.g. PRFLAG, UHFLAG etc). This format is also used below to describe the options (the Flood Modeller Interface does not require knowledge of these 'flags').
Equations
The FEH Boundary calculates total runoff as a function of the following components:
P = precipitation; either calculated for a specific return period (ERFLAG = 'FEHER') or 'observed' (ERFLAG = 'OBSER'). This rainfall depth will use a rainfall profile either based on winter data (RPFLAG = 'WINRP'), summer data (RPFLAG = 'SUMRP'), or observed/derived values (RPFLAG = 'OBSRP').
UH = unit hydrograph; either calculated (UHFLAG = 'FSRUH') or observed/derived (UHFLAG = 'OBSUH')
PR = percentage runoff; either calculated (PRFLAG ='FEHPR') or observed/derived (PRFLAG = 'OBSPR')
BF = baseflow, either calculated (BFFLAG= 'F16BF') or observed/derived (BFFLAG='OBSBF')
Where the above components are 'calculated' then the following equations are used (new terms are either defined after introduction or are listed in the subsequent Data section).
Rainfall
If using the standard FEH rainfall profile (ERFLAG=FEHER):
The design rainfall depth is calculated from the depthdurationfrequency (DDF) relationships defined in FEH Volume 2 Section 2.3. The rainfall depth is multiplied by the areal reduction factor to produce areal rainfall.
Unit Hydrograph parameters
The unit hydrograph can either be derived from local data and specified as a time series of UH ordinates (usually preferred), or the standard FEH triangular UH can be used. Where the standard FEH UH is used (UHFLAG=FSRUH) then T_{p} can either be specified (TPFLAG=OBSTP) or calculated (TPFLAG = FEHTP) from:
where
and DPSBAR, DPLBAR, PROPWET, URBEXT and CAREA are defined in the Data section and are usually obtained from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology website and/or the FEH CDROM (if appropriate).
Total Percentage Runoff
If using the FEH method and SPR to calculate percent runoff (PRFLAG = FEHPR):
where
and SPR and CWI are as defined in the Data section, with SPR best obtained through analysis of local event data, but in the absence of records can be obtained from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology website and/or the FEH CDROM (if appropriate), and CWI may be entered directly (CWFLAG = 'OBSCW') or, for the design case, the program can calculate it from a digitised version of Figure 3.7 in FEH Volume 4.
Baseflow
If using the standard FSSR16/FEH calculation method for baseflow (BFFLAG = F16BF):
Note that several fields within the datafile are left blank (or contain zeros). This is to facilitate easier portability between the FSRBDY and FEHBDY units, i.e. fields describing FSRBDY parameters which are not used by FEHBDY or have no FEHBDY equivalent are ignored and therefore do not need to be overwritten when converting FSRBDY boundary units to FEHBDY boundaries.
Probable Maximum Flood (PMF)
The FEH Rainfall Runoff Method Boundary allows you to obtain a PMF (Probable Maximum Flood) estimation for the catchment using the FEH guidelines. This involves the introduction of the Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) design storm hyetograph, including modifications to the CWI and snowmelt contributions, in addition to further modifications to other constituent factors, namely the unit hydrograph and percentage runoff. These modifications are relative to those for the Tyear flood estimation. The design storm period remains unchanged. A choice of summer and winter PMPs are available. For further reading and a detailed description of the method, see the FEH Vol. IV, Chapter 4 and Hough and Hollis (2006).
Design PMP  EMP
Values for EMP_{2h} and EMP_{24h}, the allyear point estimated maximum precipitations (EMPs) of 2hour and 24hour duration for the catchment, must be supplied (in mm). Additionally, the 25day EMP (EMP_{25d}) is required for design storms of long duration (D > 19.1hrs). Examples of appropriate values can be found in the FEH Vol. IV, Figures 4.14.3.
The hyetograph is then derived from the supplied EMPs, the EM rainfall and seasonal variation factors as given in the FEH, and the areal reduction factor (ARF) at each time interval D_{t}, 3D_{t}, ... D.
For time intervals of more than 0.5hr, the ARF is calculated by Flood Modeller as a function of STAREA and STDUR from a digitised form of Figure 3.4 in the FEH Volume 4. For time intervals between 0.25hr and 0.5hr, the ARF is interpolated from values in this table. For time intervals of less than 15 minutes, the ARF is extrapolated from this table and may be inaccurate.
Design PMP  Snowmelt
For Winter PMPs, storm event and antecedent period snowmelt contributions may be added, which also may affect the CWI. Snowmelt is invoked by supplying positive values for the snowmelt rates (in mm/day). Alternatively, snowmelt rates can be calculated automatically as:
 Melt rate (storm) = 100yr melt rate + melt rate due to storm rain energy
 Antecedent melt rate = 100yr melt rate + melt rate due to antecedent rain energy
The 100year melt rate and melt rate energy are determined based on the following:
Melt rate energy =
where
and the 5year melt rate and M100:M5 growth rate are obtained by a regression equation based on Northing and Altitude (ALTBAR), and using extreme value analysis based on the nearest available weather station, respectively.
When using snowmelt, a value for S100 (100year snow depth water equivalent, in mm) must also be set. The snowmelt contribution to the precipitation at during each time interval D_{t} is therefore
D_{t} * melt rate
subject to enough snow from the total S100 being available.
For Summer PMPs, no snowmelt contribution will be added, irrespective of whether a snowmelt rate is supplied.
Design PMP  CWI
For the Catchment Wetness Index (CWI) for a PMP, the equation used is:
with the estimated antecedent rainfall given by
where
For a Winter PMP, if a snowmelt option is chosen, the CWI is the summation of the CWI due to antecedent rainfall and the CWI due to antecedent melt, and is further incremented by:
where
If the amount of snow remaining from S100 after the contribution from the storm period has been removed is insufficient, then the necessary adjustments are made according to FEH Vol IV, Section 4.3.4.
The calculation for baseflow is dependent on CWI, therefore this value will also be different from that for the Tyear flood estimation.
Frozen Ground SPR
The calculated percentage runoff method remains the same as that for the FEH Tyear flood estimation FEH with the exception that a Winter PMF is assumed to contain the frozen ground adjustment that the SPR cannot be lower than 53%. If this frozen ground adjustment is not required for a Winter PMF, then the user should manually calculate a percentage runoff and select an Observed PR.
Unit hydrograph timetopeak
The calculated timetopeak of the PMF instantaneous unit hydrograph is adjusted by a factor of 0.67 from that of the standard FSR unit hydrograph, thus:
If an Observed timetopeak is selected, it is assumed that this factor is contained within the value and no adjustment is made.
General
The user is referred to the Flood Estimation Handbook, for full details of the derivation, application and limitations of the rainfallrunoff method.
The FEH recommends that where possible, certain of the rainfallrunoff model parameter values obtained from catchment descriptors are replaced with, or revised using, values from observed data. General recommendations on parameter estimation are:
 If suitable event data are available then the FEH recommends calculating T_{p}from such data, for example
where  The data interval, t, should be small enough that the flood hydrograph is well defined. A data interval of 10%20% of the T_{p}(0) is usually suitable. This should then be rounded off to a convenient value such as 0.25, 0.5, 1 or 2 hours.
It is usually important to find the critical values of parameters such as storm duration and storm profile which give the largest flood peak (or largest flood volume in some cases). The sensitivity of the model results to these parameters is described in the FEH and some conclusions are:
 For deriving design events the FEH recommends use of the 75% winter profile or 50% summer profiles. On predominantly rural catchments (URBEXT < 0.125) the 75% winter profile is recommended. On more urban catchments (0.125 ≤ URBEXT ≤ 0.5) the 50% summer profile is recommended. These two profiles are included as options in the FEHBDY unit and can be accessed by setting the options RPFLAG to 'WINRP' or 'SUMRP' respectively.
 Simulated peak flows can be sensitive to D, the storm duration. For the design case, the recommended storm duration for critical flood peak is:
With D taken as the nearest odd integer multiple of t. Note that with reservoired catchments or semidistributed catchment modelling it will be necessary to consider a range of durations. The raw value of D, i.e. not adjusted for t, is output under "Critical Storm Duration" in the *.zzb (data summary) file after an unsteady or boundary mode simulation. NB The value of T_{p} used is the time to peak of the thour unit hydrograph.
In the FEH procedure the flow return period is not necessarily equal to the storm (rainfall) return period.
 In rural or only moderately urbanised catchments (URBEXT < 0.125) the FEH procedure provides a relationship between the storm and flow return periods (e.g. a 140year storm return period is said to produce a 100year return period flow).
 For urban catchments (0.125 ≤ URBEXT ≤ 0.5), the storm and flow return periods are assumed to be equal.
The FEHBDY unit will use this relationship to calculate storm return period if the storm return period in the datafile is set to zero. For highly urbanised catchments (URBEXT > 0.5), FEH procedures are not recommended, and, in such cases, a nonfatal warning message will be displayed.
The point rainfall calculation (ERFLAG='FEHER') is derived from a DepthDurationFrequency (DDF) model (FEH, Volume 2, Chapter 2). For a valid DDF model, the storm return period must be greater than one year, whereas one greater than 10000 years is not recommended. Furthermore, the parameters were based on observations of return periods of no greater than 1000 years. When importing the parameters for the DDF method from the FEH CDROM output, the values used are c,¼,f, rather than c(1km),¼,f(1km). The Flood Modeller implementation of the DDF model is based on a sliding duration rainfall (FEH Volume 2 Section 2.5), rather than a fixed duration.
For userinput unit hydrograph ordinates, the user may specify the units of these values from a selection of four commonly used units. These are any combination of 1cm or 1mm of effective rainfall depth covering either the whole catchment area or per 100km^{2}. These units will also be used in the various unit hydrograph output options, either textually (*.zzb and *.zzh files) and graphically, via the user interface. The units specified also apply for output when deriving the unit hydrograph by the FEH (FSR) method.
Whilst the FEHBDY is essentially a UKspecific lumped single event rainfallrunoff model, the underlying unit hydrograph approach is applicable to other countries if the various components of the model are defined using local data.
