Prediction of sediment transport and filling rates of invert traps in combined sewers

A. Fraser, A. Schellart, R. Ashley & S. Tait
A sediment transport prediction model and an invert trap performance model for combined sewers were linked. The modelling of the sediment transport was achieved by combining modified existing models of sewer sediment transport, erosion, and deposition. The invert trap performance model simulated sediment trapping efficiency for traps of a given geometry, for a range of sediment characteristics at given flow conditions. Two case studies are reported in this paper, one in an existing sewer system...
