Culverts are used to convey water across a roadway. Culverts can be made from a variety of materials and also come in a variety of shapes. The shape and type of culvert will depend on several factors including roadway life, flow rates, soil conditions, water elevations and depth of placement among others.
This course will cover the hydraulics of highway culverts as well as commonly used shapes, inlet and outlet conditions, and other special considerations.
This course is based on the document “Hydraulic Design of Highway Culverts,” published on the website of the Federal Highway Administration.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
