What is Catchment Area?

A catchment area is a hydrological unit. Each drop of precipitation that falls into a catchment area eventually ends up in the same river going to the sea if it doesn't evaporate.

How to Calculate Dicken's Formula?

Dicken's Formula calculator uses Peak Discharge=Dickens Constant*Catchment Area^3/4 to calculate the Peak Discharge, Dicken's Formula is defined generally for the catchments of North India whereas for catchments in south India, Ryve’s formula is preferred. Peak Discharge and is denoted by Qp symbol.

How to calculate Dicken's Formula using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Dicken's Formula, enter Dickens Constant (C) and Catchment Area (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Dicken's Formula calculation can be explained with given input values -> 7453.6 = 2.8*22^3/4.

FAQ

What is Dicken's Formula?
Dicken's Formula is defined generally for the catchments of North India whereas for catchments in south India, Ryve’s formula is preferred and is represented as Qp=C*A^3/4 or Peak Discharge=Dickens Constant*Catchment Area^3/4. Dickens Constant C is a constant whose value varies widely between 2.8 to 5.6 for catchments in plains and 14 to 28 for catchments in hills, depending upon the catchment characteristics and Catchment Area is an area of land where all water flows to a single stream, river, lake or even ocean.
How to calculate Dicken's Formula?
Dicken's Formula is defined generally for the catchments of North India whereas for catchments in south India, Ryve’s formula is preferred is calculated using Peak Discharge=Dickens Constant*Catchment Area^3/4. To calculate Dicken's Formula, you need Dickens Constant (C) and Catchment Area (A). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Dickens Constant and Catchment Area and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
