CULVERT OUTLET PROTECTION DESIGN: COMPUTER PROGRAM DOCUMENTATION
This computer program is capable of estimating the scour extent at culvert outlets and designing both rigid and rock riprapped stilling basins. It provides protection for the local scour problem only and not the gully scour situation. The types of erosion protection available include U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Station Estimate of Scour Extent, U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Station Rock Riprapped Basins, Colorado State University Rock Riprapped Basins, Vertical Stilling Well, St. Anthony Falls Stilling Basin, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Type VI Basin, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Type I Basin, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Type II Basin, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Type III Basin, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Type IV Basin, and Colorado State University Smooth-Floor Flared Basin. The computer program was developed in a modular framework to facilitate the addition of new design methods that may be implemented in the future.
