Flow Capacity of Sewers with a Sediment Bed
Paper in proceedings, 1987

Laboratory measurements were made to measure flow capacity in partfull pipe with a stable plane sediment bed. A concrete pipe and two different sizes of sediment were used. Flows were calculated using the composite-roughness technique from open channel theory. Good agreement between the observed and the calculated flow values was found.
