HYDRAULIC EFFICIENCY IN CULVERT DESIGN

ALTHOUGH ALL OF THE EQUATIONS REQUIRED FOR THE HYDRAULIC DESIGN OF CULVERTS ARE WELL-KNOWN, THE DETERINATION OF WHICH EQUATION APPLIES TO A PARTICULAR SITUATION IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE. TWENTY-TWO SUB-ITEMS ARE LISTED FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE DESIGNER AS HE DETERMINES THE HYDRAULIC PERFORMANCE OF CULVERTS. THE DEGREE OF CUMPETENCE REQUIRED FOR THIS DETERMINATION IS SUCH THAT ONLY WELL-TRAINED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE ENGINEERS SHOULD BE ENTRUSTED WITH IT. EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN TO ILLUSTRATE THE PHILOSOPHIES OF DESIGNING CULVERTS FOR A UNIQUE OR SINGLE HEAD-DISCHARGE RELATIONSHIP AND FOR A NON-UNIQUE OR MULTIPLE AND TIMEWISE INDETERMINATE HEAD-DISCHARGE RELATIONSHIP. /AUTHOR/
