Stormwater water drainage inlet

  • Sir, I have created a on grade inlet having different opening to increase its inlet efficiency.
  • I want to analyze its efficiency and compare it with other standard inlets. So can I do it in flowmaster software or any other software?
  • I need help as I am working on this as my Masters project which is going on and I don't have any idea about this.
  • This is the model that I have created with inclined opening on sides of this RCC grate.

  • Hello Darshil,

    You can use FlowMaster to calculate the efficiency of your On Grade inlet. See the screenshot below for reference;

    However, you would have to specify certain grate parameters such as grate width, length, type and clogging factor (%). The grate types available for selection are as per HEC-22 (3rd Edition) Design Manual on Urban Drainage. See the link to the manual here.

    In FlowMaster you can then compute "efficiency" for the grate parameters provided.

    Let me know if this helps.
