A program for the evaluation of discharge in line-drainage systems was developed. Complex hydraulic situations are treated, such as lateral inflow varying along the drainage channel with respect to the shape of the drainage area. Sudden changes in the cross sections and flow hindering structures are to be treated. Additionally, sand may be accumulated in the channels and the maximum possible accumulation can be known for a given runoff. The programs were checked against hydraulic investigations.
