DESIGN AND CAPACITY OF GUTTER INLETS

THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF GUTTER INLETS TO CARRY WATER FROM CITY STREETS TO THE SEWER SYSTEMS HAS LONG BEEN A TROUBLESOME PROBLEM. THE CAPACITIES OF EXISTING DESIGNS ARE KNOWN ONLY IN A GENERAL WAY, AND NEW TYPES OF CONSTRUCTION GIVE NO ASSURANCE OF IMPROVEMENT IN CAPACITY. THE PURPOSE OF THE INVESTIGATION WAS TWOFOLD: FIRST, TO DETERMINE THE CAPACITIES OF THE SEVERAL TYPES OF INLETS IN USE WHEN INSTALLED ON VARIOUS GRADES, AND SECOND, TH STUDY THE HYDRAULIC PRINCIPLES INVOLVED WHEREBY IMPROVEMENT IN INLET DESIGN COULD BE EFFECTED, ESPECIALLY ON STEEP GRADES. /AUTHOR/
