DRAINAGE MANUAL FOR THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

This two-volume drainage manual reflects current hydrological design conditions in South Carolina. Volume I (theory manual) includes discussion of concepts and computer programs that are availabe to engineers who design drainage structures. Attention is given to phenomena that influence the hydraulics of culverts and bridges and a section has been devoted to design problems associated with longitudinal drainage. Sediment-erosion problems and methods of debris control are discussed. Volume II (design manual) is written to guide design engineers who are already familiar with the concepts of hydrology and hydraulics. Early chapters deal with the policy, procedures and field survey techniques that form the foundation of most designs. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 cover the design of culverts, bridges and longitudinal drainage. Design examples are interspersed in the test. Analytical and numerical solutions are given. The final chapter provides information for basic erosion control in designs. The design procedures are easy to follow and require a minimum of supplementary material. /FHWA/
