From page 1...
... 1   The increased frequency of extreme rainfall events, inland and coastal flooding, and other water-related stressors poses challenges to roadway infrastructure. Initial approaches to quantify these stressors used lumped hydrological modeling approaches.
From page 2...
... 2 Resilient Design with Distributed Rainfall-Runoff Modeling • One common application for hydrological techniques is estimating peak flows from hydrological events, such as culvert design. Lumped approaches can provide these peak estimates more conveniently, albeit less adaptable than DRRMs, considering factors such as climate change.
From page 3...
... Summary 3   • Finally, the top three barriers reported by state DOTs to the use DRRMs included (1) the lack of training opportunities, (2)
