What is Specific Capacity?

Specific Capacity is the amount of water that is furnished under unit lowering of the surface of the water in a well by pumping.

How to Calculate Specific Capacity?

Specific Capacity calculator uses Specific Capacity=Pumping Rate/Total Drawdown to calculate the Specific Capacity, The Specific Capacity is the amount of water furnished under a standard unit head which is a short term sustainable discharge divided by the drawdown yielding the discharge. Specific Capacity and is denoted by S symbol.

How to calculate Specific Capacity using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Specific Capacity, enter Pumping Rate (Q) and Total Drawdown (st) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Specific Capacity calculation can be explained with given input values -> 57.14286 = 2/0.035.

FAQ

What is Specific Capacity?
The Specific Capacity is the amount of water furnished under a standard unit head which is a short term sustainable discharge divided by the drawdown yielding the discharge and is represented as S=Q/st or Specific Capacity=Pumping Rate/Total Drawdown. Pumping Rate is the actual volumetric pumping rate and Total Drawdown is a change in groundwater level due to an applied stress.
