The paper presents the results of analysis of the influence of the maximum intensity (peak) location in the synthetic hyetograph and rainfall duration on the maximum outflow from urban catchment. For the calculation Chicago hyetographs with a duration from 15 minutes to 180 minutes and peak location between 20% and 50% of the total rainfall duration were design. Runoff simulation was performed using the SWMM5 program for three models of urban catchment with area from 0.9 km2 to 6.7 km2. It was found that the increase in the rainfall peak location causes the increase in the maximum outflow up to 17%. For a given catchment the greatest maximum outflow is generated by the rainfall, which time to peak corresponds to the flow time through the catchment. Presented results may be useful for choosing the rainfall parameters for storm sewer systems modeling.
