    Abstract

    The Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA) has recently proposed a modified design approach to minimize sedimentation in sewers. This approach relies on laboratory-based work for calibrating the sediment transport, and to hydraulic resistance relationships. To provide sewerage designers, managers and planners with information about the general applicability of current methodologies regarding the design of sewers, to manage sediment problems, the basis of the CIRIA design methodology is examined. A comparison of the laboratory work and real sewer conditions is also made.
