The TENAX-CDS model

The model is capable of computing short-duration IDF curves and design storms for flash flood assessments under increasing temperatures. The TENAX-CDS is physically based, considers both thermodynamic and dynamic changes, and is highly efficient. It requires a minimal set of parameters and input data, and its projections only rely on simulations of daily temperatures during rainy days from coarse-resolution climate models.
