oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Capacity of lateral stormwater inlets

Volume 18, Issue 9
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper descriptionbes a numeric method for calculating the interception capacity of lateral kerb inlets of prescribed lengths. It discusses the proposition that on moderate to steep road gradients capacity can be substantially improved by incorporating an extended length of depressed gutter upstream of the inlet. Design charts for road crossfalls of between two per cent and six per cent are included.
