Abstract

A synthetic rainfall generation (SRG) model was developed to generate rainfall forecasts (in a probabilistic sense) for highway construction sites (H.C.S.) in Texas. The output from this model is a rainfall time series on a 15-minute basis. A bootstrapping method, that resamples actual rainfall data, is used to evaluate the parametric SRG model. Significant computer storage space is saved by transferring actual rainfall data into a parametric model.
