The research described proved that the capacity of some culverts can be increased significantly by improving the hydraulic flow conditions at the culvert inlet. The research necessarily dealt with a wide range of culvert geometries and detailed hydraulic theory. Types of improved culverts selected for presentation in the new improved inlet design manual included bevel-edged, side-taped, and slope-tapered design.
