Step 1) Gather Hydrological Data Q = cia = (.35*52*.82) = 14.9 cfs Culvert Location

Step 1 Cont.) Site Specific Data Invert In El. = 564.9’ Invert In El. = 564.9’ Invert Out El. = 564.5’ Invert Out El. = 564.5’ Pipe Length = 75’ Pipe Length = 75’ Slope = -0.5% Slope = -0.5%

Step 1 Cont.) Site Specific Data Calculate Tail Water, TW Calculate Tail Water, TW 2.5’ btm, class 50 rip-rap lined FBD with 2:1 side slopes @ outlet Manning’s Equation for discharge Q = (1.486/n)*A*R 2/3 S 1/2 Using a spreadsheet & setting Q as a function of depth, I get the following results when d=1.7 ft: 15.0 cfs = (1.486/0.07)*10.03ft 2 *0.99ft 2/3 0.05 1/2 TW = 1.7’ TW = 1.7’

Step 3) Find HW Depth For Trial Size Assume inlet control Assume inlet control From Nomograph,From Nomograph, HW/D = 3 HW/D = 3 HW depth w/ inlet control HW depth w/ inlet control approx. 569.4 ft., which approx. 569.4 ft., which is too high I’ll try a 24” pipe I’ll try a 24” pipe

Step 3) Find HW Depth For Trial Size Assume inlet control Assume inlet control From Nomograph,From Nomograph, HW/D = 1.2 HW/D = 1.2 HW depth w/ inlet control HW depth w/ inlet control approx. 566.7 ft., which approx. 566.7 ft., which is OK. The 24” pipe looks The 24” pipe looks good so far

Step 3 Continued  Need to calculate H, total outlet control head loss  Outlet control nomographs can be used if outlet crown is submerged. (TW>Top of Pipe @ Outlet) TW @1.7’ < D @ 2’, so I will not use the nomograph TW @1.7’ < D @ 2’, so I will not use the nomograph Check for outlet control

Step 3 Continued Alternatively, H can be calculated by following the steps on the culvert design sheet Alternatively, H can be calculated by following the steps on the culvert design sheet Calculate critical depth, d cCalculate critical depth, d c Critical depth = 1.4’ (from graph located in Chapter 8, appendix B)Critical depth = 1.4’ (from graph located in Chapter 8, appendix B)

Step 3 Continued Following Steps 4 thru 5 on the culvert design sheet: Following Steps 4 thru 5 on the culvert design sheet: (d c +D)/2 = (1.4’+2’)/2 = 1.7’(d c +D)/2 = (1.4’+2’)/2 = 1.7’ h o = TW or (d c +D)/2, whichever is greaterh o = TW or (d c +D)/2, whichever is greater TW @ 1.7’ = (d c +D)/2 @ 1.7’,use 1.7’
