a week ago i had posted a question on the LIST about the afore mentioned
subject, unfortunately i am yet to see any response on the same. Iam posting
this question again with a hope some expert will find time to respond
" iam designing & detailing a buried concrete box channel for storm water
drainage. It has a concrete transition both at inlet & outlet. From my
experience i know every concrete transition should have a cutoff wall at the
end. There is a resistance from some quarter for putting a cutoff wall in
the shop drawing. According to them its not necessary. i seek opinion of the
experts, on design of hydraulic structures, on this issue. Is cutoff wall
necessary or not in a concrete transition for a cross drainage structure?"
Thank you all in advance.
