Abstract—The aim of the research was the verification of
Euler type II model rainfall used so far in modeling storm water
drainage operation in Poland. Rainfall data from measurement
stations in Wroclaw were used. For further analysis, rainfalls
were selected on the basis of exceedance frequencies. Rainfalls
were grouped with the use of cluster analysis: Ward and
k-means methods. Especially the k-means method has proven to
be useful for selecting precipitation in terms of hyetographs’
shapes. On the basis of clustering results, 51 precipitation were
selected for verification of Euler type II standard. The
statistical analysis of hyetographs shapes similarity was based
on 6 parameters defined in the paper. The comparative analysis
revealed that, despite some discrepancies, Euler type II model
rainfall is suitable for the description of rainfall in tested
Index Terms—Rainfall, rainfall modeling, rainfall models, storm water drainage.
