The paper presents the results of an analysis of the influence of synthetic rainfall duration and location of rainfall intensity peak on the rate of the flood volume in surcharged storm sewers. The analyzed rainfalls had durations from 15 minutes to 180 minutes. It was assumed, that the rainfall peak location would change between the beginning and the end of the rainfall with increments of 10% of the rainfall duration. Outflow simulations were performed with the use of SWMM5.1.012 for three models of real urban catchments with surfaces from 1.6 km2 to 6.7 km2. An assessment of the influence of rainfall parameters was made on the basis of the flood volume rates. Short rainfalls with peaks located at the beginning of rainfall duration do not generate flooding. For other rainfalls it was found that for a specified rainfall duration the flood volume increases with the increase of time of the rainfall peak location. The maximum flood volume varied from 5% to 12% of the total runoff volume, depending on the catchment area, and is generated by the rainfall, whose intensity peak occurs right after the time corresponding to the flow time through the catchment.
