16. Abstract
 Hydraulic Design series No. 5 combines culvert design information previously contained in HydraulicEngineering Circulars (HEC) No. 5, No. 10, and No. 13 with hydrologic, storage routing, and special culvertdesign information. The result is a comprehensive culvert design publication. Hydrologic analysis methodsare described, and references cited. Culvert design methods are presented for both conventional culverts andculverts with inlet improvements. Storage routing techniques are included which permit the designer toaccount for ponding effects upstream of the culvert. Unique culvert applications, erosion and sedimentcontrol, debris control, structural aspects, and long-span culverts are discussed and references cited. Inletcontrol, outlet control, and critical depth design charts, many of which are newly developed, are included for avariety of culverts sizes, shapes, and materials. New dimensionless culvert design charts are provided for thedesign of culverts lacking conventional design nomographs and charts. The appendices of the publicationcontain the equations and methodology used to construct the design charts, information of the hydraulicresistance of culverts, and methods of optimizing culvert design using performance curves and inletdepression. Calculation forms are provided for most of the design methodologies in the manual.The second edition corrected minor errors and provided both SI and English (U.S. customary) units for allequations and design charts.
