Abstract

The purpose of this study is to update the pluviometric information so as to adapt WinTR55 Model to Uruguay. For this, daily maximum rainfall data from 56 pluviometric stations were analyzed, taking into account the annual series from 1970 to 2010. The information gathered will enable to reliably use the hydrological model in order to calculate the maximum discharges, design hydrographs, and flood routing hydrographs through different agricultural hydraulic structures. A well-known upgraded software was used, which resulted in a more accurate, fast, use-friendly and effective design.
