Optimization of sediment trap configuration using CFD modelling for Indian drainage systems

K. Gupta, P. Mehta, T. Thinglas, S.J. Tait & V. Stovin
The flow capacity of urban stormwater drainage channels in major cities of India are gradually being reduced due to increased quantities of solid waste being introduced into these systems. During low flows, the solid waste forms deposits within these open drainage channels. These must be regularly cleaned to ensure that the drains function at an optimal hydraulic capacity in order to limit overflows. This places a significant burden on the operators of these systems. The...
