Select the type of the Sediment Basin by clicking the drop down list.
Basin Requirement #
Calculate basin requirement by inputting data in Basin Requirement tab.
- Input the catchment area.
- Input the overland sheet flow path length, slope, and manning coefficient to obtain the overland flow time of concentration.
- Click the “ Calculate” button to obtain the required area and volume.
Basin Sizing #
Calculate overall dimension of setting and sediment storage zone by inputting data in Basin Sizing tab.
- Settling Zone
a. Input settling depth, y1 (parameter: min. 0.6m)
b. Input average width, w1
c. Input average length, L1 by referring to the range proposed.
d. Click “ Calculate” to obtain average surface area, L 1/y1 ratio and L1/w1 ratio.
- Sediment Storage Zone
a. Select side slope (H):(V)
b. Input sediment storage depth, y2 based on the suggested minimum depth.
c. Click “ Calculate” to obtain the overall dimension of settling and sediment storage zone.
Outlet Design #
Design the outlet by inputting data in the Outlet Design tab.
- Outlet Pipe
