HYDRAULICS OF BOX CULVERTS WITH FISH-LADDER BAFFLES

THE PLACEMENT OF TRANSVERSE BAFFLES IN BOX CULVERTS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING FOR TRAVERSE OF FISH HAS BECOME INCREASINGLY NECESSARY IN RECENT YEARS. CONSEQUENTLY, MODEL STUDIES WERE MADE TO DETERMINE DESIGN FACTOS FOR BAFFLED CULVERTS AS RELATED TO BAFFLE HEIGHT AND SPACING, AND TO DEVELOP HYDRAULICALLY EFFICIENT BAFFLE SHAPES FOR USE IN THE CULVERTS. THE RESULTS BASED ON THE TREATMENT OF THE BAFFLES AS ROUGHNESS IN A RECTANGULAR CONDUIT, WERE OBTAINED IN THE FORM OF VELOCITY-HEAD COEFFICIENTS; ONE DEPENDENT UPON AND THE OTHER INDEPENDENT OF FRICTION EFFECTS. THE FIRST OF THESE IS GIVEN IN THE FORM OF A DARCY-WEISBACH FRICTION FACTOR, AND THE SECOND, WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR ENERGY COMPONENTS AT ENTRANCE AND OUTLET, IN THE FORM OF AN "ENERGY COEFFICIENT." /AUTHOR/
