CULVERTS DIMENSIONAL OUTPUT

DIMENSIONING OF CURRENT CONSTRUCTION WORKS CONCERNING THE OUTPUT SECTION, HAS TWO ASPECTS: (1) HYDROLOGIC DATA FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE OUTPUT VALUE, AND (2) A HYDRAULIC NATURE ALLOWS FOR THE DISCHARGE FLOW. THE GREAT NUMBER OF CURRENT CONSTRUCTION WORKS REQUIRE SIMPLE AND PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS, OF EASY APPLICATION TO ACTUAL CASES, WHERE THERE ARE FEW DATA ABOUT THE NATURE OF THE SOIL TO BE DRAINED. THE SIMPLIFICATIONS INTRODUCED IN THE COMPUTATIONS, SHALL ALWAYS BE REMARKED IN ORDER TO AVOID FALSE RESULTS BY BY THE APPLIED METHOD. THIS WORKS CONSIDERS ONLY THE HYDROLOGIC ASPECT OF CULVERTS DIMENSIONING. THE PRINCIPLE METHODS CURRENTLY USED ARE SUBMITTED AND DISCUSSED. A BASIC PHILOSOPHY TO GUIDE THE DIMENSIONING STUDIES IS DEFINED, AND SPECIALLY A RATIONAL METHOD FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE OUTPUT IS DEVELOPED, TO BE APPLIED TO THE CENTRAL AND SOUTH REGIONS OF BRAZIL. /RRI/
