Mean Depth Calculator

Mean Depth refers to the average depth of water in a stream channel or conduit. Mean Depth is equal to the cross-sectional area divided by the surface width.

Formula hm = AT

    Mean Depth :
    hm = A/T

    Area of Section Flow :
    A = hm*T

    Top Water Surface Width :
    T = A/ hm

    hm = Mean Depth,
    A = Area of Section Flow,
    T = Top Water Surface Width.

    The advanced online Mean Depth Calculator is useful in calculating the hydraulic mean depth of water.

    Calculate the Mean depth of water in a stream by the given details.
    Area of Section Flow (A) = 25 m2
    Top Water Surface Width (T) = 20 m

    Apply Formula:
    hm = A/T
    hm = 25/20
    Mean Depth (hm) = 1.25 m
