BICYCLE-SAFE GRATE INLETS STUDY VOLUME TWO--HYDRAULIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THREE SELECTED GRATE INLETS ON CONTINUOUS GRADES
Additional hydraulic tests were conducted on three grate inlet designs identified as bicycle safe, hydraulically efficient and having good debris handling characteristics. The grates were selected based on the results of a previous study--Bicycle-safe Grate Inlets Study--Volume I, Hydraulic and Safety Characteristics of Selected Grate Inlets on Continuous Grades. The major objective of the initial study was to identify, develop, and analyze selected grate inlets which maximize hydraulic efficiency and bicycle safety. Numerous design curves are provided to aid the hydraulic design engineers with grate inlet selection. /FHWA/
