Runoff Coefficient

Runoff Coefficient is the ratio of between the peak runoff rate and intensity of rainfall.

The Rational Method is based upon following Two Assumptions:

1. Rainfall occurs at uniform intensity for duration at least equal to the time of concentration of watershed.

2. Rainfall occurs at a uniform intensity over the entire area of watershed.
The value of ‘C’ runoff coefficient in the rational formula should be taken from following table.
