THE DESIGN AND TEST OF A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE STORM-SEWER INLET

A new combination inlet for storm water was designed and tested on a 1:4 scale model to determine its hydraulic efficiency. Experimental results obtained from two transverse slopes, 1/48 and 1/32, and seven longitudinal slopes equal to 0.006, 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04, 0.06 and 0.08 show that the new inlet maintains a relatively high intercept ratio over a wide range of these variables at low as well as high total discharges. Prototype tests are recommended to insure that this new inlet is also bicycle-safe.
