Description: Technical report
This is a review of the Hydrologic Criteria and Drainage Design Manual (Clark County Regional Flood Control District 1999) of the Clark County Regional Flood Control District (CCRFCD). Areas of needed research relative to channels conveying supercritical flow and corresponding channel appurtenances have been identified. The extension of features common to supercritical channel flow is presented. A case is made that extension of hydraulic design guidance of supercritical confluences (trapezoidal channels and laterals from storm drains), extensions to bridge piers, and access ramps for trapezoidal channels is needed.
