Stormwater drainage systems are typically composed of a network of closed conduits designed to operate under normal conditions in an open-channel, freesurface flow regime. Nevertheless, during intense rain events, the conduits may fill completely, undergoing a transition to a closed-pipe, pressurized flow. For sufficiently rapid filling, this transition will occur through a moving interface that advances into the free-surface portions of the system. In particular, if the system geometry… CONTINUE READING
