Abstract: This study investigated the temporal rainfall pattern in order to facilitate rainfall design, which normally requires a good understanding of the temporal patterns of rainstorm events. The analysis employed a storm-event-based approach using the concept of inter-event time definition (IETD) and rainfall depth/duration/intensity thresholds. The 5-min rainfall data at three raingauge stations were analysed to determine representative quartiles of a design storm in a tropical city. The temporal characteristics of the design storm could be determined from the rainfall depth ratios of consecutive peak rainfalls for each interval of storm duration, and time to the first peak rainfall depending on each quartile’s rainstorm events. The determination of the quantile distribution of tropical rainfall could help improve the representativeness of design rainfall and facilitate rainfall–runoff modelling for urban flood control in a tropical region.
