Serial Information: Journal of the Power Division, 1968, Vol. 94, Issue 2, Pg. 111-124

Document Type: Journal Paper


An evaluation is made of the headloss caused by rectangular-bar trash-racks and baffles. The influences of bar depth and bar spacing are discussed. For bar depth to thickness ratios > 3.0 the headloss can be accurately estimated using only the velocity of approach and the rack or baffle flow area.
