I am trying to compute the time of concentration (Tc) through railroad ballast. The ballast section is only 6" thick and includes a gradation of 2.5" minus. Currently we are thinking that we need to compute the Tc verticaly and then horizontaly. The railyard varies from 100' - 120' wide.
Does anyone have any experience determining time of concentrations and CN values for railroad ballast?
