• ### Culvert Design. Inlet And Outlet Control

therefore, in addition to the normann methodology, we have incorporated manning's equation for outlet control when the headwater depth is less than 0.93 times the culvert diameter. 0.93d is used since it is the depth at which discharge through a partially full circular culvert is a maximum (chow, 1959).

barrel. the energy grade line represents the total energy at any point along the culvert barrel. headwater is the depth from the inlet invert to the energy grade line. the hydraulic grade line is the depth to which water would rise in the vertical tubes connected to the sides of the culvert barrel. in

• ### Culvert Hydraulics: Basic Principles

hw is headwater depth above the inlet invert (feet); el 0 is the elevation of the culvert invert at the outlet; h 0 is the governing tailwater (feet); h l is head loss through the culvert (feet). to find the governing tailwater, h0, the critical depth in the culvert must first be determined.

• ### 11 Headwater Calculations - Research Network

headwater depths are a function of the entrance shape, along with the depth and velocity immediately inside the culvert. headwater depths are determined by summing the energy losses associated with entrance shape, exit expansion and friction of the culvert. this is described in the basic energy balance equation: where: y = depth (ft, m)
