Sewer Calculations

Does anyone know of any resources of how to calculate pipe grade and various other sewer design calculations.

RE: Sewer Calculations

Two very good reference books I use:

Ven Te Chow, Open Channel Hydraulics, McGraw-Hill, 1959

Ram S. Gupta Ram S., PhD Gupta ,
Hydrology & Hydraulic Systems, Waveland Press Inc, 1989

RE: Sewer Calculations

If you're asking about storm sewer design, try the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) web site.  Download HEC-22 Urban Drainage Design Manual and Hydraulic Design Series No. 4 - Introduction to Highway Hydraulics.  These two publications should get you started.

RE: Sewer Calculations

Another ref is Stormwater Collection Systems Design Handbook, Mays, McGraw Hill.  It covers all aspects.  I picked up a used copy online for $12 plus shipping.  Well worth it. HEC22 as Maury stated above it a good source.  It can be dl's in pdf format I beleive.  Here is FHWA Link
