ARR) is a national guideline document for the estimation of design flood characteristics in Australia. It is published by Engineers Australia. The coefficients entered will describe the rainfall for a particular area of the country.Australian Rainfall and Runoff (
To determine the required values you can use the calculator on the Australian Bureau of Meteorology website, which can be accessed by clicking the hyperlink on the form. Once the IFD has been generated for the location the values needed are shown under the Coefficients table.
Enter the ARR variables described below into the form and the select the required set of Storm Durations to be run by the analysis.
The ARI (Average Recurrence Interval) for the event.
