HYDRAULIC THEORY FOR DESIGN OF STORM-WATER INLETS

THE CAPACITY OF MANY STORM-WATER INLETS CAN BE FOUND BY COMPARING THE FLOW INTO THE INLET WITH THE FLOW INTO A WIDE OPENING. IN THIS MANNER, FORMULAS ARE DERIVED FOR THE DESIGN OF CURB-OPENING INLETS WITHOUT GUTTER DEPRESSION, GRATE INLETS, AND COMBINATION INLETS, WITH OR WITHOUT GUTTER DEPRESSION. THE FORMULAS HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIATED WITH NUMEROUS TEST DATA. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF OTHER TYPES OF INLET ARE ALSO MENTIONED. IT IS FOUND THAT THE MOST- EFFICIENT TYPES ARE THE COMBINATION INLET AND THE GRATE INLET. IN BOTH CASES, THE GRATE SHOULD HAVE ONLY LONGITUDINAL BARS. WHEN THE STREET GRADE IS STEEP AND GUTTER DEPRESSION IS CONSIDERED UNDESIRABLE, A CURB OPENING WITH DIAGONAL NOTCHES IN THE GUTTER MAY BE USED. /AUTHOR/
