The MFD may be computed as per the following formula.

Dicken's Formula, Q = CM3/4


Q = Discharge in Cusecs

CA upto 1 Sq.mile.C=1400

CA from 1 Sq.mile to 30 Sq.milesC=1200

CA more than 30 Sq.milesC=1060


Ryve's Formula Q = CM2/3

C = 1000 for Q more than 500 cusecs

For deltaic catchment of Krishna & Godavari the formula shall be Ryve's formula adopting 'c' value as per the Mitra Committee Report for Upland & Deltaic Catchments.(Mitra Committee Report)
