Abstract:
Up to 1900 severs were constructed of brick and stone, sometimes accompanied by concrete backing and occasionally of plain concrete. From long experience with these materials, certain typical sections had been developed, of which the circular and egg-shaped brick sewers in the smaller sizes were more common. For larger sizes some form of arch with a generally flat invert was used.
