Abstract
In the paper under discussion, the authors describe their one third Froude scale model and demonstrate its use to improve the currently used HEC22 methods (FHWA 2009) to design inlet systems through the estimation of hydraulic efficiency for curb and grated inlets. This type of experimental study is quite necessary to characterize the hydraulic behavior of grated or curb inlets because some manufacturers provide inlets with little or no hydraulic information about the capacity to intercept stree...
