Properties of Extreme Point Rainfall I - DTU Orbit (26/04/14) Properties of Extreme Point Rainfall I - DTU Orbit (26/04/14) Properties of Extreme Point Rainfall I : Results From a Rain Gauge System in Denmark Extreme rainfall has been recorded by the larger municipalities in Denmark since 1933. National intensity-duration- frequency curves were produced on this basis for engineering application in the whole of Denmark. In 1979, on the initiative of The Danish Water Pollution Control Committee under The Society of Danish Engineers, the old municipal rain gauges for measuring extreme rain were exchanged with a modern system of gauges tabbed electronically from a central computer at The Danish Meteorological Institute. The data have revealed a geographical variability that calls for revision of the engineering application of rainfall data for design. The article describes the engineering purpose and design of sewer systems, the initial data treatment, the results from the first statistical analysis and the consequence for engineering application.
