Hello fellow Civil Engineers,
I am Ray, a newly practicing civil engineer in the field of Water Resources Engineering. I would like to ask for your advise about what would be the best empirical formula to use in determining the time concentration of culvert pipes?
PS: Tried searching for the same topic here but got none from the search box.
Hello sir thanks for your response,At the moment, I'm still designing the size of the culverts, so I need to know the discharge (Qp).Cause as what I've read in Hydrologic Analysis and Design by Richard McCuen, it stated that I need to compute the travel time in the pipes first so that I can determine the rainfall intensity, which it will be used to determine the discharge.
PS: Thank you for the enlightenment about the difference between the Time concentration and Travel Time.
