Adopting a ‘whole life’ approach to the design and operation of culverts, screens and outfalls, this manual replaces two previous guidance documents, CIRIA C689 Culvert design and operation guide (Balkham et al, 2010) and the Environment Agency’s Trash and security screen guide (Graham et al, 2009).
The manual reflects the significant changes that have occurred in asset management over the last 20 years, supplementing the outfall and culvert design sections of the UK Design manual for roads and bridges (DMRB).
Written by a team of specialists in hydrology, hydraulics, civil engineering and asset management and guided by a panel drawn from representative bodies of infrastructure operators and contractors, this manual is for use in all the nations of the UK and has sections relevant to designers, managers and asset owners.
Spreadsheet appendices from the publication, containing both initial need assessments for security and debris screens, as well as checklists for culverts, outfalls and screens is available in a downloadable zip file.
