A study was made to reduce the computation of EI values without sacrificing the accuracy, from total depth of precipitation and maximum intensity data for selected time intervals. Daily rainfall data from automatic rain gauge charts for 7 years was collected. EI and PI values were calculated for 5, 10, 15, 30 and 60 min durations using methods by Wischmeier (1959) and Erasmus (1970). A linear relationship was observed between EI and PI for all durations considered.
