Title: Computer-Aided Design of Precast Polymer Concrete Line-Drainage Channels
Author(s): Ulrich Zanke
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 15-26
Keywords: computer programs; drainage; economics; polymer concrete; precast concrete; safety; structural design; Design
Abstract: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.
