PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF MULTI-CELL CULVERTS. FINAL REPORT

Results of field and laboratory model studies dealing with culvert performance are presented. The study concentrated on the determination of the effect of stream alignment, culvert geometry and number of cells on culvert performance. Results of the study indicate that for the range of headwaters analyzed, the flow skew has negligible effect on culvert operation. The study also showed that the design discharge of a well-aligned single culvert can be doubled to determine the discharge through twin culverts.
