Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Resources Planning and Management and Urban Water Resources


Chapter 6 of the manual on Design and Construction of Urban Storm Water Management Systems discusses the hydraulic principles and equations under which drainage system structures must operate. These include conservation of mass, total and specific energy, Bernouilli's equation, Froude number, critical and normal depths, Manning's equation, water surface profiles, hydraulic jump, friction loss, and minor losses. These principles and equations, structures to which they apply, and the two urban drainage systems are discussed.
