A dimensionless approach for determining the scouring performances of flushing waves in sewer channels

A. Campisano, E. Creaco & C. Modica
In the management of sewer systems great attention has recently been addressed to the problems determined by the accumulation of sediments on the bottom of the channels. The hydraulic flushing devices have proved to be a cost-effective solution for the channel cleansing and therefore they have been adopted in several sewer networks. This paper reports the results of a numerical investigation on the scouring performances of flushing waves. For the investigation, a numerical model based...
