HEC HMS,rainfall runoff relationship,Sungai Pahang River ,


Flash flood happens when the drainage or river could not cope with the sudden increase in rainfall volume. In Malaysia, flash flood often occurs in the developed cities such as Kuala Lumpur and Kuantan. Water yield or reservoir storage is the collection and storing of water during high-water period and to be used during low-water period. It preserves the excess water where or else it will result in water wastage and potentially cause a flood disaster to happen. The capacity of the water yield has to be sufficiently large to sustain the amount of increasing rain water without overflowing. The study aims to investigate the rainfall runoff relationship of Sungai Pahang River. Study period of this hydrological modelling was selected from year January 2013 to December 2017. The hydrological modelling using HEC-HMS of Sungai Pahang resulted with a correlation of 0.65 and Nash-Sutcliffe coefficient of 0.41. Clark unit hydrograph in transform method and recession constant in baseflow method have great impact on the simulation result.
