Computer Model for Infiltration System Design

by Thomas N. Debo, (M.ASCE), Georgia Inst of Technology, Atlanta, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computing in Civil Engineering


This paper describes a personal computer model which was developed to assist in the design and analysis of infiltration systems. The systems included in the model are infiltration basins, infiltration trenches, dry wells, porous asphalt pavement and vegetated swales with check dams. This paper outlines the data needed and procedures that must be followed to use the model, possible applications, and a computer slide show which can be used to assist in training professionals in the use of the model. Model limitations and anticipated problems in using the model are discussed.
