Comparative study among different methodologies to determine storm sewer inlet efficiency from test data

B. Russo & M. G\303\263mez
Storm drain inlets are used to collect urban runoff and discharge it to an underground sewer system. Inadequate attention to inlet capacity can cause undue hazard to the security of many urban activities. Several agencies and manufacturers of grates have investigated inlet grate interception capacity by hydraulic tests. Actually the reference in this field is the Hydraulic Engineering Circular No.12 published by U.S. Department of Transportation; it describes a semi-theoretical method for estimating inlet efficiency...
