Abstract:Surcharge of a sewer is the situation in which the sewer entrance and exit are submerged and the pipe is flowing full and under pressure. In this report the hydraulics of the surcharged flow as well as the open-channel flow leading to and after surcharge is discussed in detail and formulated mathematically. The transition between open-channel and surcharge flows is also discussed. This information is especially useful for those who intend to make accurate advanced simulation of sewer flows. In this study an approximate kinematic wave - surcharge model called SURKNET is formulated to simulate open channel and surcharge flow of storm runoff in a sewer system. An example application of the model on a hypothetical sewer system is presented.
