HDS-5 Inlet Control Equations

INLET CONTROL EQUATIONS A.1 INTRODUCTION This appendix contains the inlet control equations used to develop the design charts of this publication (HDS-5). Section A.2 contains the equations for the unsubmerged and submerged inlet control equations. Section A.3 demonstrates how the Section A.2 equations are used to create dimensionless design curves for culvert shapes with coefficients […]
