# Design calculation sheet ( Rain Water Pipe Sizing)

## AL MAHA CENTER FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS Approved by:

A x R x 0.0104
GPM = x 0.0104 => GPM = 0.0

A x R / 3600
L/S = 1406 x 100 / 3600 => L/S = 39

## R = Rainfall Intensity in ("/hr) in gpm formula or (mm/hr) in metric formula

A = Roof Area in (ft2) in gpm formula or (m2) in metric formula
