Surface infiltration is calculated per cell. First, the infiltration capacities are calculated:

Then the actual infiltration:

Where:

= The average infiltration capacity based on constructions on top of the surface, based on GROUND_INFILTRATION_MD defined in either the building or function.
= The average infiltration capacity based on the surface terrain, defined by GROUND_INFILTRATION_MD. This value should be interpreted as the vertical conductivity (Kv) of the sub-soil.
= The average infiltration capacity on top of the surface.
= The average infiltration capacity below the surface.
= The infiltration capacity from surface to the unsaturated zone.
= The surface infiltration which takes place.
= The amount of water on the surface. Also known as the water column.
= Computational timestep.
