Area Drained Calculator
How many acres can a pipe drain?

Manning's roughness coefficient (n):

For smooth-wall inside corrugated plastic, n=0.012

For 5 and 6 inch single-wall corrugated plastic, n=0.015
For 8 inch single-wall corrugated plastic, n=0.016
For 10 inch single-wall corrugated plastic, n=0.017
For 12 and 15 inch single-wall corrugated plastic, n=0.018
For 18 and 24 inch single-wall corrugated plastic, n=0.020
