Preamble to the August 1988 Edition


The revision of ATV Standard A 110 had to give consideration to a host of suggestions
from practice, to realise the firm ideas of the ATV Advisory Board and to deal with
fundamental relationships. The questions relating to the recalculation of existing sewer
networks (performance verification), in particular, made it necessary to expand the
theoretical part of the draft of the new version to a greater extent than is customary in a
standard, which is not meant to be a manual.

Consequently, the Working Group first devised a comprehensive draft - the October
1985 version - which contained more information, explanations and source material than
was necessary for this Standard. The final print is an abbreviated version which is
essentially limited to describing the procedure in individual practical cases and no longer
contains any explanatory information or justifications.

The following accompanying publications to this ATV Standard appeared in Vol. 1/1989
of the Korrespondenz Abwasser:

Howe, H.O.: Grundzüge des neuen ATV-Arbeitsblattes A 110 [Main features of the new
ATV Standard A 110.]

Haendel, H.: Auswirkungen der Neufassung des ATV-Arbeitsblattes A 110 auf die
hydraulische Nachrechnung von Abwasserkanälen [Effects of the new
edition of ATV Standard A 110 on the hydraulic recalculation of sewers].

Knauf. D.: Fließtiefen und Durchflüsse für gegliederte Querschnitte [Flow depths and
throughflows for structured cross-sections].

Ueker, K.J.: Abfußberechnung in Abwasserkanälen unter Berücksichtigung seitlicher


Zuflüsse [Flow calculation in sewers taking into account lateral inflows].

Unger, P.: Grundlagen der kb-wert-Festlegung im Arbeitsblatt A 110 [Bases of the


determination of the kb value in Standard A110].

Preamble to the present Edition


Due to suggestions received, amendments and corrections which have become
necessary and due to having to take into account the European Standard DIN EN 752
“Drain and sewer systems outside buildings”, Part 4 “Hydraulic design and environmental
considerations”, it has become necessary to revise the August 1988 edition of ATV A
110.

ATV Standard ATV-A 110 is, within the framework of European standardisation, a source
for additional information in accordance with DIN EN 752, Part 4, Section 4, and thus a
component part of this European Standard.

The results of various ATV research projects have flown into the revised edition.
Fortunately the following were available for this:

September 2001 3
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
- Beeinflussung der Leistungsfähigkeit von Kanalstrecken durch konstruktive
Veränderungen im Bereich der Schächte [Influencing of the efficiency of sewer
reaches through design changes in the area of shafts] (ATV/Deutsche
Bundesstiftung Umwelt [German Federal Foundation of the Environment]
- SIMK - Simulation von Teilfüllungenskurven [Simulation of partially filled curves] (ATV
25/97 and ATV 31/99)
- Schießender Abfluß in Krümmerschächten [Supercritical outflow in shafts for change
of flow direction] (ATV 09/98).

Important amendments in comparison with the August 1988 edition are:

- separation of the procedure with dimensioning and with performance verification


- revised, expanded representation of flow losses in shafts with and without
impounding
- new type of treatment of flow in shaft structures with supercritical discharge with
simultaneous flow diversion
- analytical treatment of flow in noncircular profiles and with partial filling conditions
- dropping taking into account the form coefficient f
- generalisation of the treatment of discontinuous flow by the introduction of the
factor m
- calculation of the energy conversion in the outlet area of steep sections
- expanded new version of the treatment of flat reaches and deposits
- revision of the calculation for open channels and structured cross-sections.
With the calculation of surface curves the uninterrupted transfer from partial filling via
complete filling to pressure discharge (impounding) also taking into account the
impounding of shafts, is possible. Simplified mathematical models require model-specific
approaches, which would lie outside the scope of ATV Standard A 110.

For reasons of easier reading and comparability with the August 1988 edition of ATV-
A 110, the use of new [German] spelling rules introduced in some Federal German
States has been dispensed with.

Notes for Users


This ATV Standard is the result of honorary, technical-scientific/economic collaboration
which has been achieved in accordance with the principles applicable for this activity
(statutes, rules of procedure of the ATV and ATV Standard ATV-A 400). For this,
according to precedents, there exists an actual presumption that it is textually and
technically correct and also generally recognised.

Everyone is at liberty to apply this Standard. However, an obligation for application can
arise from legal or administrative regulations, a contract or other legal reason.

This Standard is an important, however, not the sole source of information for correct
solutions. With its application no one avoids responsibility for his own action or for the
correct application in specific cases; this applies in particular for the correct handling of
the margins described in the Standard.

1 Scope
ATV Standard A 110 “Guidelines for the hydraulic calculation of sewers” in its original
version (October 1965) [not translated into English] had presented the calculation of the
discharge capacity and flow rate on theoretically better assured bases. Building on the
results from Prandtl and Colebrook, the discharge condition, which is based on a
dimensioning, can be better described. Furthermore, the ever increasingly important
subsequent calculations of existing networks, without application of the bases, would
contain considerable uncertainties.

The first revision (August 1988) updated this Standard ATV-A 110 [translated into
English as ATV Standard ATV-A 110E] as “Standards for the Hydraulic Dimensioning
and Performance Verification of Sewers and Drains”. This second revision builds further
on this.

A summary of the rules due to European standardisation and their adoption through DIN
EN 752-4 serves for current orientation. The symbols and terms used are - as far as
possible - in agreement with DIN 4044 “Hydromechanics in hydraulics; definitions”, DIN
4045 “Wastewater engineering; vocabulary” and DIN EN 752 “Drain and sewer systems
outside buildings”, Part1 “Generalities and definitions”.

2 Hydraulic Principles
2.1 Forms of Discharge and Discharge Processes

The discharge in sewers and drains is characterised by a great number of


simultaneously possible forms of discharge, the most important of which in the area of
sewer systems are compiled in Table 1 below. All details refer to parameters in the
direction of flow.

Under the given prerequisites and ignoring further terms of the complete differential
equation there result gradually simplified calculation statements, which are put together
in Table 2 with their associated designations. The equations in Line (0) describe in detail
the discharge process in sewers and drains in a generally valid form. Line (1) applies for
transport pipelines without lateral in- or outflows along the calculated stretch.

September 2001 8
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
Further simplifications to Line (2) to Line (6) result through random omission of individual
influencing elements. Neglecting the elements

1 ∂v v ∂v
⋅ and ⋅
g ∂t g ∂x

errors occur which can have the opposite tendency.


For transport pipelines the application of the equations in Line (4) should therefore
definitely be given preference over the calculation methods according to Line (2) or Line
(3). A more extensive assessment of the correctness of the various simplified
assumptions has to date not been possible, instead one is reliant on control calculations
in individual cases.

The necessary numerical assumptions (increments ∆x, ∆t; their ratio; convergence
criteria) are to be observed for solutions based on the complete statements in Lines (0)
or (1). Simplification according to Line (7) is applied for the calculation of partial filling
conditions (see Sect. 3.1.2), but describes a discharge form which - with the exception
of very long transport pipelines - does not occur in the practical operation of sewers and
drains. Nevertheless the use of this relationship, represents a useful estimation on
whose accuracy no exaggerated demands should be placed and whose limits are
redefined in this standard.

2.2 Defining Equations


The defining equation for the mean flow rate is

v= (1)

In which the following apply
v the mean velocity in the direction of flow [m/s]

the flow stretch in the direction of flow, is

In which the following apply:

dimensioning.
2) This resistance formula was developed by D’Aubuisson de Voisin (1834) and Weisbach (1845); it is often erroneously attributed
to Darcy and also incorrectly referred to as the “Darcy-Wiesbach Equation”

Converted Eqn. (2):

hf 1 v2
JE = =λ ⋅ ⋅ (3)
l 4h ry 2g

Here, JE is the designation for the gradient of the energy curve.

In the case of steady-state, uniform discharge (Line 7 of Table 2), the so-called normal
discharge, the gradient of the energy curve JE is equal to the sole gradient Jso. This can,
in general, be formed with the projection length of the pipeline. Up to a gradient of some
200 ‰ the inherent error is less than 2 %. On the other hand, with steep stretches, the
actual pipeline length is to be applied.

With the hydraulic dimensioning and calculation tasks within wastewater engineering,
there are not only continuously active influences such as wall friction to be taken into
account but also the effects of locally occurring individual losses to be included in the
calculation.

2.3 Drag Coefficient

In connection with the resistance coefficient, a distinction is made between the following
cases and ranges for turbulent flow (laws of resistance):

1) Ideal or hydraulically smooth behaviour (smooth curve) according to Prandtl:

September 2001 12
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

= 2 ⋅ lg(Re ⋅ λ ) − 0.8 = − 2 ⋅ lg 
 (8)
λ  Re ⋅ λ 

2) Completely or hydraulically rough behaviour (completely rough area) according to


Prandtl

3) Technically rough behaviour (transitional area) according to Colebrook

1  2.51 1 k 
= − 2 ⋅ lg + ⋅  (10)
λ  Re ⋅ λ 3.71 4rhy 

Only Eqn. 10 is of practical importance for use in sewers and drains. It is generally
designated as the Prandtl-Colebrook equation.
Here the following apply:

Colebrook Equation and to be determined precisely through hydraulic trials only [mm;
m].
rhy the hydraulic radius, calculated from the clear dimensions of the flow - in the case of
circular pipes it is 4rhy = d [m].cross-section.
In the so-called Moody diagram, Fig. 1, the relationships expressed in the above
formulas are represented in graphic form. A detail of the part of this diagram interesting
for the most frequent cases in practice is contained in Appendix A5.
The application of the relationships according to Eqns 8, 9 and 10 is permitted for both
circular cross-sections and non-circular cross-sections and that is for closed profiles and
also open channels. Even in the case of cross-sections, which are far from circular, the
taking into account of a form coefficient f is dispensed with for the correction of the
hydraulic radius rhy 4). The kinematic viscosity is defined as

η 2
v= [m / s] (11)
ρ

Here the following apply:


η dynamic viscosity [kg/(m ⋅ s)]
ρ density [kg/m3]
The dependence of kinematic viscosity on the temperature is shown in Table 3.

Within this the normally higher temperatures and the other composition of wastewater
compared with pure water are taken into account.

2.4 Loading Assumptions and Critical Values

The load assumptions for determining the flow and water surface profiles can be found in
ATV Standard ATV-A 118E. Information concerning the surface run-off (e.g. percolation,
pit losses and flow times) is given in ATV-A 118E and ATV-M 165.

DIN 1986, Part 2 applies together with DIN EN 12056 for private property drains within
buildings; outside of buildings the standard series DIN EN 752 applies.

With the dimensioning of sewers and drains, for reasons of correct operation, attention is
to be paid to the observance of critical values for flow velocities. Flat stretches (see Sect.
6) are characterised by operation in the vicinity of the minimum velocity, steep stretches
(see Sect. 7) by operation with relatively high velocities.

Global critical values for both ranges are no longer suitable. The recommended
procedure is dealt with in detail in Sects. 6 and 7.

3 Formulas for Calculation in the Standard Case


3.1 Closed Channels

The dimensioning of new construction and renovation of sewers and drains is normally
oriented towards complete filling (Index: V), whereby this should not be exploited to the
full. If the dimensioning discharge reaches 90 % of the discharge capacity Qv, it is
recommended to select the next largest cross-section. This gives global consideration to
the following:

- undercutting of nominal dimensions within the permissible framework in accordance


with DIN 4263, Sect. 2.1,

- reductions of cross-section due to unavoidable deposits of up to 3 % of the total


cross-sectional area even if sewers and drains are maintained regularly,

- equation of the actual sewer length l with its projection l’.

With performance verification of sewers and drains the respective permitted back-up
heights or the overdamming frequency are relevant (see DIN EN 752-2). Procedure for
dimensioning is presented in Sect. 4 of this standard.

3.1.1 Complete Filling

For circular profiles the general discharge formula is:

September 2001 15
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

π ⋅ d2   2.51 ⋅ ν k  
Q= ⋅  − 2 ⋅ lg +  ⋅ 2g ⋅ d ⋅ JE  (12)
4   d ⋅ 2g ⋅ d ⋅ J 3.71 ⋅ d  
  E 
For non-circular profiles the general discharge formula is:

  2.51 ⋅ ν k  
Q = A ⋅  − 2 ⋅ lg +  ⋅ 2g ⋅ 4rhy ⋅ JE 
 (13)
 4rhy ⋅ 2g ⋅ 4rhy ⋅ JE 14.84 ⋅ rhy 
  

A mathematical consideration of the deviation of any profile (form coefficient f) from the
circular profile is dispensed with, as for all normal cross-section shapes in sewer
systems, f can be set = 1.

Eqn. 13 applies for all profile shapes used in sewer systems such as, for example, oval,
tapering and channel cross-sections, also with considerable deviation from a circular
shape.

In the case of steady-state, uniform discharge in pipes filled to the top, Eqns. 12 and 13
the energy gradient JE is replaced by the sole slope JSo.

In keeping with the details given in Sect. 4.1, the roughness k can be replaced by the
operational roughness kb. In all cases - circular profile as well as non-circular profile -
DIN 4263, Sect. 3.2 (clear width) is valid without restriction and must be observed5).

3.1.2 Partial Filling

Simplified assumptions can be made for the calculation of discharge processes with
partial filling. For steady-state, uniform discharge (normal discharge) the energy gradient
and water surface profile run parallel to the sole (Fig.2). With partial filling curves the
partial filling values are referred to complete filling.

Water surface profile calculations are absolutely essential with non-uniform discharge
(see also Sect. A3.)

Degree of filling h/H and the therefrom calculated geometrical parameters (see Table 14)
are non-dimensional; with circular pipes H = d. The profile H is always measured
perpendicular to the pipe axis The filling height h must therefore also be measured
perpendicular to the pipe axis. The filling height is thus not the same as the depth of
water h’, but rather linked with this parameter h’ by the relationship
h / cos φ = h' (14)

and therefore with cleaned sewers is always somewhat smaller than the depth of water6).

____________________
5)
Clear widths are the actual dimensions of the cross-sections. The dimension of the clear width should correspond with the
characteristic value of the nominal width. For the purpose of hydraulic dimensioning in wastewater engineering and in general
hydraulic engineering may only be assumed to be equal to the nominal width if the undercutting of the cross-section, referred to
the numerical value of the nominal width, does not exceed 5 %. In this case the average clear diameter undercuts the
characteristic value of the nominal width by ca. 2.5 %.
6)
With gradient values ≤ 200 ‰ (0.200; 1:5) h = h’ and l = l’ can be set; the resultant error is ≤ 2 %. Eqns 14 and 15 are to be used
for calculation with larger sole gradients

For the length the following applies


September 2001 16

Investigations have shown that the unrestricted application of Eqns. 16 and 17 is justified
for all forms of cross-section10). In addition to this, the possibility is pointed out of

ATV-DVWK-A 110E
calculating the normal depth of water in partially filled cross-sections directly using
iterative evaluation of Eqn. 13.

The theoretical investigations by Tiedt8) have confirmed the practical experiments by


Sauerbrey9) insofar as the influence of air friction on the discharge behaviour of partially
filled, closed cross-sections can be neglected. The partial filling curves thus have a
reverse bending part with a discharge maximum with partial filling, to which the greatest
possible stable normal depth of water is to be assigned.

Due to the problems of aeration or air entrainment in sewer pipelines, combined with the
resultant risk of the surcharging of the pipelines, the partial filling curves for discharges
are terminated at

QT

With profiles with a flat roof it is recommended that the partial filling curves for discharges
are terminated, dependent on the width of the cross-sections, 10 to 20 cm below the
crown, whereby the following is possible in these cases:

3.1.3 Special Profiles with Dry Weather Channel

The calculations with complete filling for this type of profile are carried out using Eqn. 13
over the complete cross-section, without hydraulic structuring in the partial profile.

The calculation for partial filling is in accordance with Sect. 3.2.3.

3.2 Open Channel

Sewers in the form of open channels pose questions with the hydraulic dimensioning as
well as with later performance verification, which in part deviate from the treatment of
closed profiles. Nevertheless, it should be noted that, in the case of the calculation of
water surface profiles, the conditions in partially filled, closed profiles correspond with
those, which are dealt with here for open channels. In this respect the statements of this
section are also valid for general solutions for sewers and drains in the operational state
of partial filling.

Under normal conditions of operating open, natural channels the Reynolds No. is so high
that, in the sense of the definition in accordance with Eqn. 9, one has, as a rule, to
reckon with flow in the completely rough range.

Therefore it is possible in this case also to apply other relationships for the determination
of the energy gradient. As an alternative to the treatment according to Prandt-Colebrook
the relationships according to Manning-Strickler can be recommended here. For the flow
formula these are
2/3 1/ 2
v = k St ⋅ rhy ⋅ JE (18)

and for the discharge formula


2/3 1/ 2
Q = A ⋅ k St ⋅ rhy ⋅ JE (19)

using the coefficient

 m1 / 3 
k St   in accordance with Manning-Strickler,
 s 

which, in the fully rough range, is dependent on wall roughness only (see Appendix A7).

3.2.1 Calculation of Flow Depths

3.2.1.1 Normal Water Depth hn

In special cases, for example in the case of long, disturbance-free flow sections, normal
discharge prevails. Under this term are gathered those discharge processes with which,
in the flow direction x, none of the flow parameters involved changes or with which the
assumption of this idealised flow condition is necessary for reasons of convenience
(estimation, analytical simplification). Under these circumstances the friction gradient JF,
the energy gradient JE, the water profile gradient JW and the sole gradient JSo are,
mathematically, equal to each other: Thus the following applies

September 2001 20
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
JF = JE = JW = JSo (20)

The depth of water with which the condition in accordance with Eqn. 20 is met, is called
the normal water depth hn, whose calculation takes place with the aid of Eqns. 13 and 20
or 19 and 20.

If Q, JSo, d, kb and v are specified in Eqn. 13, or Q, KSt, and JSo, and the form functions A
= f(h) and rhy = f(h) in Eqn. 19, then the flow depth sought, the normal water depth hn can
be determined mathematically by iteration.

Whichever formula is selected for the calculation of the normal depth of water the
associated discharge can result as sub-critical (Fr < 1), supercritical (FR > 1) or also in
the transition condition (FR = 1) (see Table 1) Thus whether subcritical or supercritical
normal discharge is present is decided by the size of the Froude number.

3.2.1.2 Critical Depth hcrit

Initial relationship for each dealing with flow characteristics in the boundary area, with
velocity distribution assumed to be uniform, is the relationship

Q2 ⋅ b
Fr 2 = =1 (21a)
g ⋅ A3

where

Fr Froude Number [1]


b water level width [m].

For partially filled circular sections the following approximation applies

Q2
Fr 2 = (21b)
g ⋅ d ⋅ h4

Attention is drawn to ATV Standard ATV-A 111 (Sect. 3.2) for oval and tapering profiles.

Warning is given on the simplified definition of the Froude Number Fr = v / g ⋅ h as h


signifies the actual flow depth in the special case of the rectangular cross-section only.

The critical depth always appears with transition between subcritical and supercritical
discharge. Within wastewater engineering it is to be observed with large differences in
the sole gradient of neighbouring reaches (e.g. drops, change of cross-section). Places
at which the critical depth appears mark a decoupling of parts of the wastewater network,
which is to be noted when dealing with the subject mathematically.

3.2.1.3 General Flow Depth h(x)

Discharge takes place unevenly, unsteadily and discontinuously. The usual form of the
approximation originates from Line 5 of Table 2 and uses the relationships for the
unsteady, uneven discharge only, i.e. the water depth rises (backwater curve) or falls
(decline curve) in the direction of flow with the result that neither the friction gradient nor

September 2001 21
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
the energy gradient nor, as a result of this, the water surface profile are known from the
outset.

Under these conditions the flow depth sought h varies from place to place, that is h = f(x)
and can only be found by integration of the differential equation of the water surface
gradient. This results from the relationships relevant in the case under consideration in
accordance with Line 5 of the tables is

dh JSo − JF
= (22)
dx 1 − Fr 2

whose integration delivers the desired result.

JSo − JF
h( x ) = ∫
x 1 − Fr 2
dx + h a (23)

As both JF and Fr2 represent functions of h this also succeeds only by iteration. The initial
water depth hi, to be accounted for as additive constant, is either specified (e.g. as
design retention level) or is to be calculated from the flow parameters of designated
positions, so-called monitoring cross-sections, for example in the form of a critical depth
hl. If the discharge is supercritical (Fr > 1), integration is to be downstream.; if there is
sub-critical discharge present in the integration zone (Fr < 1), then integration as a rule
is to be taken against the direction of flow (upstream).

The calculation of flow resistance or energy head losses can be according to Prandtl-
Colebrook or Manning-Strickler.

3.2.2 Calculation of Flows

3.2.2.1 Normal Discharge Qn

Normal discharge is the throughflow or volume flow in an open prismatic channel present
with normal water depth.

In these cases, i.e. with uniform discharge with JF = JE = JW = JSo, the throughflow can be
determined directly knowing the parameters JSO, kb, g, ν (applying the Prandtl-Colebrook
equation) or JSo, kSt (applying the flow formula according to Manning-Strickler) as well the
form functions A = f(h), rhy = f(h) and the flow depth h = hn from Eqn. 13 or Eqn. 19.

3.2.2.2 Critical Ql

The critical discharge Qcrit is that throughflow or volume flow which discharges in an open
channel under local or continuous critical conditions, i.e. with Fr of Fr2 = 1.

If one resolves Eqn. 21a which is relevant for this, then one obtains the following
conditional equation for the critical discharge in an open channel

g ⋅ A3
Q crit = (24a)
b

and as approximation for partially filled circular cross-sections


September 2001 22
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

Q crit = g ⋅ d ⋅ h 4 (24b)

3.2.2.3 Discharge Curve Q = f(h)

The graphic or numerical assignment of flow depths h or water levels hNN to


throughflows Q at designated positions xi of open channels is designated as discharge
(also rating or level) curve. In the special case of normal discharge requires only an
evaluation of Eqn. 13 or Eqn. 19.

On the other hand, in the normal case, i.e. with non-uniform discharge, a water surface
profile calculation is required in advance which, for these purposes, is to be repeated
with the specification of various throughflows and which produces, dependent on the
throughflow, different results for JF, Fr and, if required, hA.

If, however, flow depths and associated water level gradients known through on-the-spot
measurements, then the discharge curve can be determined semi-experimentally and
presented in a self-contained form. In the sense of sufficient accuracy such
measurements should be carried out with steady discharge and as far as possible at a
point which lies in the region of a decline curve for the water level profile.

The relevant flow formulas for this for the case of prismatic channels are given below:

3.2.3 Flow Depths and Flows for Structured Cross-Sections

In structured channel profiles and in particular with small flow depths above the
benching, different flow depths, different flow velocities and thus also secondary flows
arise in the partial discharge areas.

September 2001 23
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
Through this the hydraulic efficiency reduces as the kinetic part of the energy reduces
with the non-uniformity of the velocity distribution, and the friction or loss component
increases through additional interactions between the flow channel and lateral flow cross-
sections. The additional energy necessitated by the secondary flows is mathematically
accounted for through the correction factor α with α > 1. With this water depths and
discharges are to be determined only with involvement of the energy curve. A calculation
of normal flow over the sole gradient is excluded.

With cross-sectional shapes with discontinuous increase of the wetted perimeter and
with only small change to the water depth (as, for example, with profiles with dry weather
channel and double-sided benching) the different flow velocities cannot be ignored.

The influence of non-uniform distribution of velocities can be neglected if the flow depth
above the benching exceeds the depth of the channel (hB > HCh).

In the region of smaller flow depths over the lateral benching (hB ≤ HCH) the following
simplified approximation procedure is recommended for the calculation of the hydraulic
efficiency and the associated characteristic values of the flow conditions:

- separation of the structured cross-section in the partial flow region such that the
variations in velocity in the individual partial cross-section are insignificant. In this
case the delineation can be by imaginary, perpendicular interfaces.

- Increase of the geometrically wetted perimeter Ip,Ch of the flow channel through the
correction factor ∆lp* to the hydraulically effective wetted perimeter. For the
calculation of , with hB ≤ HCh, the following applies as approximation:

 2hB 
∆lp * = hB 1 −  (27)
 hB + HCh 

The following results from this:

l * p,Ch = lp,Ch + ∆l * p,L + ∆l * p,R (28)

- calculation of the water levels and low conditions which are to be set with specified
discharge with the aid of the generalised Bernoulli Equation.

With known geometry, specified discharge and progress of the energy gradient, the
respective water level position can be determined only by iteration (see Appendix A3),
whereby in the case of structured cross-sections it is additionally complicated in that the
relevant velocity head and the kinetic energy component can be given only with known
discharge distribution.

Assuming a hydrostatic pressure distribution in all partial cross-sections (parallel flow)


the energy head results from

correction value α in Eqn. 29 can be estimated in a simplified form from

With single cross-sections α = 1, with structured cross-sections α can lie between 1 and

with

For the calculation of the flow process, the hydraulic control values are to be determined
separately for the partial discharge cross-sections (see also Fig. 6). Depending on the
selection of resistance law or flow formula you obtain the following conditional equations:

Fig. 6: Designations in the structured flow cross-sections

Calculation in accordance with Prandtl-Manning, Eqn. 9 - completely rough area

September 2001 25
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
For three-part structured profile cross-sections (left - Index L; middle, channel - Index Ch;
right - Index R) the following discharge equation is, for example, to be derived from Eqns.
31 and 33

(
Q = A L ⋅ k St,L ⋅ rhy2 /,L3 + A Ch ⋅ k St,Ri ⋅ rhy2 /,Ch

)
+ A R ⋅ k St,R ⋅ rhy2 /,R3 ⋅ J1E/ 2 (34)

The iterative solution of this equation produces the discharge distribution in three-part
structured flow cross-sections.

4 Dimensioning and Performance Verification


The calculations for dimensioning and for performance verification take place using the
same hydraulic bases which, with regard to flow losses (roughness, individual losses) are
described below in detail in 4.1 and 4.2. The procedure for the calculation range are
described in 4.3 and 4.4.

4.1 Determination of Roughness

4.1.1 General Measure of Roughness k

Every calculation which makes use of the Prandtl-Colebrook resistance law requires
knowledge of the equivalent sand roughness or the natural roughness of the inner wall of
the channel in question. This degree of roughness is to be determined beforehand, as a
rule on the basis of experimental data, if required, however, also through an appropriate
estimation or determination on the basis of operational experience. The same applies for
the roughness coefficients of each type of flow formula thus, for example, also for the
coefficient kSt of the Manning-Strickler flow formula, whose arithmetic value corresponds
with the degree of roughness k of the Prandtl-Colebrook resistance law (see Appendix
A7). The special cases of deviating types of roughness (sand roughness, ripple
roughness) are dealt with in Appendix A6.

If one solves the Prandtl-Colebrook resistance law for technical roughness behaviour
(transitional region)

1  2.51 k 
= − 2 ⋅ lg +  (10)
λ  14.84 ⋅ rhy 

for k, you obtain

September 2001 26
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

dh  v2 
JF = JSo − ⋅ 1 −  (38)
dx  g ⋅ A / b 

The relationship is to be evaluated using local measured data and, with k, provides a
local, theoretically founded degree of roughness of the wetted channel sides. If the
channel sides display technical roughness as assumed based on the Prandtl-Colebrook
resistance law, then a sufficiently constant k value is to be expected independent of the
experimental data used.

4.1.2 Operational Roughness kb

If local flow resistances or energy head losses together with losses as a result of wall
friction are to be reflected in an augmented coefficient of roughness, together with losses
resulting from wall friction, i.e. if discontinuous flow resistances or losses are to be
included in an operational roughness kb, this can be done in the manner shown in Sect.
2.2, Eqn. (5a) ff. If the loss coefficients ζ of all disturbance sources located in the area of
a channel reach l are known, and if λ is used to represent the resistance coefficient
resulting from natural roughness and λb that resulting from operational roughness, the
following definition equation applies:

4rhy
λb = λ + ⋅∑ ζ (6)
l

If the operational coefficient of resistance λb is calculated, knowing Re, k, rhy and Σζ, and
if λ and Re are introduced into the resistance law, then kb/4rhy and from this the degree of
roughness kb sought can be obtained. This increased degree of roughness produces
mathematically the same total falls in energy as if one had applied continuous and local
energy falls separately and then combined these. This operational degree of roughness
kb is not dependent alone on the actual wall friction k and the incorporated individual
resistances Σζ, but additionally on rhy,l as well as normally on the Reynolds Number Re.
Global determination for kb must take this situation into account.

Under these preconditions it is possible and permitted, for dimensioning, for certain
combinations of types of loss to function with a global value kb for operational roughness.
Classification and justification are according to Table 4 dependent on the various types
of sewer. Attention is drawn to Sect. 4.3 for preconditions and limitations.

4.2 Calculation of Individual Losses

The method presented in Sect. 4.1 for dealing with questions associated with the so-
called operational roughness contains an detailed analysis of all individual influences
from which those variables arise which can be combined mathematically into a kb value.
With knowledge of the individual influences it is of course possible to collate deviating
preconditions into an individual and justified treatment. For this purpose the following
evaluation of available details and documents serves for individual losses as a result of

- positional inaccuracies and modifications,


- pipe conditions,
- inlet fittings,
- shaft structures of standard design (straight passage)(12),
- shaft structures of special design (straight passage),
- curved structures and
- conjunction structures.

4.2.4 Loss Coefficients for Control Shafts (ζC)

Control shafts within the meaning of this Standard are shafts whose benching reaches
up to the crown of the outgoing pipe (see Fig.7).

The values listed in Table 8 characterise the losses with subcritical discharge by ζ values
gained experimentally. Slight impounding leads to considerable increase of the losses.
All losses contain every influence as a result of losses with inflow, throughflow and
outflow, however, not the pipe friction component over the length of the shaft. The loss
for respectively one shaft is to be applied per sewer reach.

The ζ values for shafts with straight passage can be applied up to a change of flow
direction of maximum 10° within a shaft using

ζC = 0.05 to 0.25

Shafts with change of direction of > 10° to 45° are to be taken into account using a ζ
value of

ζC = 0.1 - 0.7.

investigations the above given values can, until further notice, also be applied for shafts
in sewers with non-circular profiles (oval profile, tapering profile).

4.2.5 Loss Coefficients for Special Shafts (ζS)

Special shafts within the meaning of this Standard are shafts in which the benching does
not reach up to the crown of the outgoing pipe and with which, therefore, higher loss
coefficients are to be applied mathematically.

Fig. 8: Special shafts with low-lying benching

The values listed in Table 9 characterise the losses with subcritical discharge by ζ values
gained experimentally. Slight impounding leads to considerable increase of the losses.
All losses contain every influence as a result of losses with inflow, throughflow and
outflow, however, not the pipe friction component over the length of the shaft. The loss
for respectively one shaft is to be applied per sewer reach.

The ζ values for shafts with straight passage can be applied up to a change of flow
direction of maximum 10° within a shaft using

ζS = 0.15 to 0.85

Shafts with change of direction of > 10° to 45° are to be taken into account using a ζ
value of

ζS = 0.3 - 1.3.

4.2.6 Loss Coefficients (ζfd) and Verifications for Flow Diversion

In the case of flow diversion, with regard to the verification to be carried out, one must
differentiate strictly between subcritical discharge (Fr < 1) and supercritical discharge (Fr
> 1).

For subcritical discharge loss coefficients ζfd can be determined and included in the
hydraulic verification (see Sect. 4.2.6.1).

For supercritical discharge this procedure is not possible. The verification losses is
replaced by design and operational details, which are to guarantee a disruption-free flow
without unwanted effects on operation (see Sect. 4.2.6.2).

Transcritical discharge conditions with

0.75 < Fr < 1.5

are hydraulically unstable and therefore are, as far as possible, to be excluded (see also
ATV Standard ATV-A 111, Sects. 3.2 and 3.6).

Loss coefficients as a result of flow diversion in shafts are already contained in the
values in Tables 8 and 9.

4.2.6.2 Supercritical Flow

The flow in shafts with diversion with supercritical discharge is characterised less by
resultant additional losses rather much more by wave formation at the outer edge of the
bend, whereby the inner edge remains quasi “dry”. This influence rises with increasing
Froude Number.

The wave height can be greater than the diameter of the exiting pipe. The wastewater
then strikes against the shaft outlet wall and can lead to a collapse of the supercritical
flow. Then a hydraulic jump occurs in the shaft which can move into the inlet pipe and
which places the shaft under pressure discharge. The air inflow in the in the submerged
pipe is then cut off; pulsation can then occur which effects a build up of the water level in
the shaft and leads, finally, to the familiar phenomena of lifting of the manhole cover and
increase of the noise loading.

The following conditions, which are fundamentally to be observed, result from detailed
investigations into this13):

- the loading of the inlet sewer (QT/QV) may not exceed 50 %


- the design of the shaft channel is always to be with raised benching (control shafts in
accordance with Sect. 4.2.4.
- diversions of 90°, with the same r/d lead to smaller disturbances than with 45° (and
shorter layout of the flow path)
- diversions of 45° can be held operationally more stable with an open straight
extension (l ≅ 3do)of the shaft
- covers in the area of the shaft are of particular advantage, especially with
retrofitting/rehabilitation of existing facilities.

4.2.7.2 Supercritical Discharge

No final details can be given in the relationships in combining structures with supercritical
discharge as the ATV-DVWK research project on this is not yet completed. From
previous available results16) findings are to be expected which require the treatment of
this section similarly as under Sect. 4.2.6.2. In order not to delay the publication of this
Standard, a detailed report will be published in the near future from which a formulation
for this section can be presented to the specialist world for discussion. The amendment
of this section will be implemented at the end of this discussion.

4.2.8 Other Loss Coefficients

Attention is drawn to Sect. 8 and the Literature for losses as a result of cases other than
those dealt with.

4.3 Dimensioning

For the calculation case of dimensioning it is recommended that the global concept
described in Sect. 4.1.2 is employed.

Here, it is emphasised that, with the global concept offered, the utilisation of the kb values
in accordance with Table 4 for standard pipes without further verification is permitted and
is to be taken as the standard case. Within the framework of the global approach with
dimensioning, the effective wall roughness for pipes currently standardised by the DIN
Standards Committee for Hydroscience is set uniformly with k = 0.1 and the flow rate as
v = 0.8 m/s in order, with this also to cover the area of partial filling. For non-standard
pipes without special verification, the effective wall roughness both for brickwork and
local concrete sewers is to be set as kb = 1.5 mm.

_________________
16)
See trials report in KA 04/2001

The global approach for kb values as a rule includes the influences of

September 2001 38
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
- wall roughness,
- positional inaccuracies and changes,
- pipe connections,
- inlet fittings and
- shaft structures.
Values according to Table 4 include the influences of shaft structures up to and including
crown filling h/d ≤ 1.0 and are therefore applicable without limitation with dimensioning.

Not included in this global definition of kb values are the influences of

a) undercutting of nominal widths,


b) effects of impounding and overdamming,
c) combining structures and
d) inlet and outlet structures of throttle stretches, pressure pipelines and siphons.

In these cases the following principles apply:

To a)

- one should calculate using the effective mean clear width or the mean clear space;
- with the dimensioning (planning), undercutting within the scope of DIN 4263 is
permitted and, within the sense of Sect. 3.1, is covered through the design with
0.9 Qv.

To c)

- the losses in combining structures are to be verified in the individual case;


- verification can be dispensed with if a bottom drop ∆z of
d
∆z ≥
20
with d the diameter or profile height H of the outgoing sewer

is planned or exists; further a verification can be dispensed with if the loading of the
continuing sewer, within the sense of Sect. 3.1, is limited with some 0.85 Qv instead
of some 0.9 Qv, as long as this sewer is operated without back-up.

4.4 Performance Verification

For the performance verification of wastewater networks (existing or in planning) the

individual concept

is to be used, i.e. detailed taking into account of all loss influences in the individual case.

September 2001 39
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
Alternatively a suitably matched

synthetic individual concept

can also be used as the basis for the network to be calculated. Here kb values can be
calculated and applied by reach or by area. An example calculation is contained in
Appendix A8 for dealing with the individual case.

Depending on the impounding or overdamming which occurs, the loss coefficients for the
shaft structure are to applied separately or by reach with the values for h/d > 1.0.

With the employment of the individual concept the losses as a result of wall roughness k
and the individual losses arising are to be verified by reach, whereby k is fundamentally
to be applied, also with regard to the change of characteristics of the pipe wall in long-
term operation.

With performance verification of existing networks, if the effective clear width in the
individual case is not or cannot be determined, one is to reckon basically with 95 % of
the nominal width in which the cross-section reduction as a result of normal depositing is
also covered.

With this, a special general kb value table for impounding, overdamming and flooding
verification is impossible.

This procedure converts DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.2.3.

5 Flow with Lateral Inflow (Discontinuous Flow)


In sewer networks calculation is to be carried out along a calculation stretch, for example
between two shafts with a flow increase as a result of lateral discharges (domestic
connections, street gullies). An exception is formed only by pure transport sewers,
throttle lengths and pressure pipelines. With collectors with lateral inflow, contrary to the
details in Table 6, one has to work with a formulation for discontinuous flow. This
requires the following system of equations:

v⋅q dh
Motion equation m ⋅ + = JSo − JF (50)
g ⋅ A dx

dQ
Continuity equation =q (51)
dx

In the differential equation for the water surface profile to be derived from this, the
lateral inflow then has the form that the right-hand side of this equation has to be
expanded by an additional term to take into account change of the velocity head
with which the energy which is required for the acceleration of the laterally
discharged volume flow to the velocity of the main stream, is taken into account.
Due to the lateral inflow the velocity distribution in the flow cross-section is also
modified so that the previously employed formulation for the friction losses is no
longer sufficient. The resistance behaviour, due to the complex flow, up to now
could only be recorded in special cases. With the lack of sufficiently sound
September 2001 40
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

findings the additional loss can, in comparison with continuous flow, be taken into
account approximately through the repeated approach of the modification of the
velocity head. In general this results in

m⋅Q⋅q
JSo − JF −
dh g ⋅ A2 JSo − JF − Jq
= = (52a)
dx 1 − Fr 2
1 Fr 2

with m as factor with the inclusion of additional losses (see Table 2). Due to the
formulation described previously, m = 2 and thus

Q⋅q Q⋅q 2Q ⋅ q
JSo − JF − − JSo − JF −
dh g⋅A 2
g⋅A 2
g ⋅ A2 JSo − JF − Jq
= = = (52b)
dx 1 − Fr 2
1 Fr 1 Fr 2

The application of this formulation is not permitted for combining


structures!

The following statements apply for the case of steady state, simplified non-
uniform discontinuous flow. They can be transferred analogously to other types of
calculation in accordance with Table 2.

5.1 Effect of Lateral Inflow

The flow loss depends on the following factors:

- total throughflow Q [m3/s],


- size and distribution of the lateral inflow q [m3/(s.m)],
- flow cross-section (with all partial influences),
- bottom gradient and flow rate.

With unfavourable conditions - i.e. in particular if a large lateral inflow is discharged into a
relatively small main stream over a short sewer length - the loss element Jq can reach
several times JF.

5.2 Simplified Procedure

Depending on the tasking, simplified procedures are recommended for the application of
Eqn. 52. These are different for the planning stage (dimensioning) and for the verification
of existing networks (performance verification).

5.2.1 Dimensioning (Selection of a Constant Replacement Flow)

In order to avoid the costly evaluation of Eqn. 52 the energy head loss along a
calculation stretch for a collector sewer, as a rule, is so determined that one determines
the friction loss for a constant - that is not discontinuous - assumed flow (equivalent
flow).

On the other hand, with the application of the throughflow Qe at the end of the calculation
stretch as constant equivalent flow over the complete reach, a higher friction loss is

September 2001 41
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
determined with which the usually additional discharge loss of discontinuous flow is
recorded.
Within the scope of justifiable accuracy, one can calculate using this simplification if, for
the component ∆Q of the lateral inflow along a reach, the criteria in accordance with
Table 11 are met in the various nominal width ranges.

Table 11: Limits on the validity of the calculation using Qe.


Relative lateral inflow
Nominal width range ∆Q/Qe
DN 200 to DN 500 No limitation
DN 600 to DN 1000 ≤ 0.30
DN 1100 to DN 2000 ≤ 0.10
DN> 2000 ≤ 0.05
∆Q = Qe - Qi

With the exceeding of the validity limits for the equivalent flow the relationships presented
using Eqn. 52 are to be investigated17) and, if required, a higher equivalent flow is to be
employed.

5.2.2 Performance Verification


For the performance verification it can be assumed that the inventory of the network for
which the verification is to be carried out has, in all respects, been recorded. This
includes the position and admission of the lateral inflow from private properties and street
drainage. With this it would be possible to record analytically the individual conditions
existing at all discharge points and to deviate from the assumed evenly distributed lateral
inflows according to Eqn. 52. This presumes that for each discharge point the geometric
and hydraulic conditions are described and taken into account via an additional individual
loss which has to be applied.
The combination of the described effects by reach and the application of an equivalent
flow remains an option.

6 Flat Stretches and Depositing


Wastewater is a mixture of water with most non-uniform substances amongst which
settleable matter is also to be met. Its sedimentation within the pipeline system can be
prevented through suitable selection of the relevant parameters. A traverse wall stress of
τ = 1.0 N/m2 should, under no circumstances, be undercut. Attention is drawn to the
Literature for the fundamental detailss18).

18) Macke, E.: Über Feststofftransport bei niedrigen Konzentrationen in teilgefüllten Rohrleitungen [On solid matter transport with low
concentrations in partially filled pipelines].

Deposits are prevented if a necessary minimum wall traverse stress, which is dependent
on the volume concentration of settleable solid matter, is achieved or exceeded. The

September 2001 42
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

necessary minimum wall traverse stress τmin in N/m2 , for concentrations of CT = 0.05 ‰
for combined wastewater and stormwater and CT = 0.03 ‰ for wastewater

τmin = 4.1Q1/3 (for stormwater and combined sewers) (53a)

τmin = 3.4Q1/3 (for normal sewers) (53b)

with Q in m3/s and that is independent of diameter and gradient of the pipeline
considered.

The respectively available wall traverse stress τavail is calculated from

τ avail = ρ ⋅ g ⋅ rhy ⋅ JF (54)

Assuming an operational roughness kb = 1.5 mm lower critical values Jc of the sole


gradient for the different nominal width ranges of oval profiles and degrees of filling of
hT/d = 0.1 to 0.5 and for τ ≥ 1.0 N/m2 according to Tables 12a and 12b19).

Both tables also contain ranges which are characterised by the maintenance of τmin = 1.0
N/m2. The details for these are underlaid in grey. For filling heights of h < 3 cm the
conditions of an even concentration with steady state discharge no longer exist. In these
cases it is recommended that gradients are determined with J ≥ 1:DN with DN in mm.

The critical values of Tables 12a and 12b can be applied with sufficient accuracy for all kb
values = 0.25 mm to kb = 1.5 mm18).

If, in the individual case, other values for cT are relevant then attention is drawn to
evaluation in accordance with footnote 18), whereby higher concentrations lead to greater
critical velocities. These are not to be seen as permitted minimum velocities but rather as
indication of the occurrence or the prevention of deposits.

With the as a rule non-constant discharges, the discharge Q relevant for this
consideration is determined in that the time with deposits (τavail < τmin) is no longer double
the time without deposits (τavail ≥ τmin).

The values of Tables 12a and 12b can also be used for profiles which, in the area of the
sole, do not significantly deviate from circular profiles. Here d = B/2 applies for oval
profiles and d = B for tapering cross-sections.

7 Steep Stretches and Air Transfer


Within the meaning of this standard steep stretches are understood to be sewer sections
within which, with supercritical discharge, the air mixture is to be taken into account with
dimensioning. This applies if the Boussinesq Number (Eqn. 56) is greater than 6.

With the hydraulic dimensioning of a steep stretch there are three different sections to be
differentiated (see Fig.11):
- inflow with acceleration stretch without air uptake,
- throughflow with air uptake and equilibrium stretch,
- outflow with energy conversion.

September 2001 45
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

Fig. 11: Section of a steep stretch

7.1 Steep Stretches - Inflow

As a rule, the critical depth hcrit is passed through in the area of the inflow. Using a
determination of the line of the water surface profile, an estimation is to be made as to
how far the acceleration stretch reaches, i.e. in which area of the sewer the transition to
the normal water depth with supercritical discharge is achieved.

Retention of the sewer cross-section above the steep stretch up to the end of the
acceleration stretch or, if possible, creation of a continuous transition over the cross-
section in the area of the throughflow of the steep stretch is recommended. Aim of this
measure is the avoidance of pulsing discharge conditions in sewer operation.

7.2 Steep Stretches - Throughflow

In this area of a steep stretch, a build-up of a water-air mixture takes place with
discharge (absorption stretch), whose safe discharge is to be guaranteed through the
appropriate dimensioning of the sewer cross-section (equilibrium stretch).

For sole gradients greater than 200 ‰, the friction gradient is to be determined with the
aid of actual length l of the sewer9). The values Q and v are then to be determined for a
planned cross-section with complete filling as well as with partial filling. The admixture of
air is determined using the enlargement ratio fair (according to Volkart, see Appx. A4).
This is dependent on the flow rate, the flow cross-section and the operational roughness.
The value relevant for dimensioning is

Q DIM = Q T ⋅ fair Q (55)

for which QDIM < 0.75Qv (corresponds with h/d < 0.65) is to be maintained.
With the aid of the Boussinesq Number Bou
September 2001 46
ATV-DVWK-A 110E

vT
Bou = (56)
g ⋅ rhy

the air concentration C is determined as


1
C =1− (57)
0.02(Bou − 6.0)1.5 + 1

The velocity vM of the water-air mixture is


v M = v T (1 − C 2 ) (58)

The air component QAir is


Q Air = Q T ⋅ C / (1 − C ) (59)

The filling height h of the water-air mixture in the area of the equilibrium stretch is
calculated as
QT + Q A
AM = (60)
VG

and the relationship h/d or h/H, which can be taken from Appx. A2, Tables 14 to 19 for
AM/AV (in place of AT/AV).
With consecutive sewer sections with changing gradient within a partial stretch, the air
component of the above lying sections is maintained for the following sections.
The hydrodynamic forces which occur are to be calculated with change of direction within
the throughflow stretches.

7.3 Steep Stretches - Outflow


The transition from supercritical to subcritical flow, as a rule, takes place in this area. The
energy conversion with this is to be localised; forces occurring are to be absorbed. For
this there are available various forms of energy conversion structures20) developed
specially for this area.
With transition with hydraulic jump in the subsequent sewer section without closure the
calculation of circular profiles takes place according to Eqns. 61 to 63.
QT
FR1 = (61)

g ⋅ d ⋅ h1

The calculation of the Froude Number for the hydraulic jump in the subsequent sewer
section takes place with the water depth h1 from hT (without taking account of the air
transfer) assuming unchanged flow velocity in the throughflow and outflow cross-
sections.

The length of the hydraulic jump is:

The position of the hydraulic jump (Fig. 12) is determined through the calculation of a
backwater curve. Effects of a backing-up of tail water are to be taken into account.

8 Special Structures
The handling of the hydraulic calculation for the special structures employed in the sewer
system would exceed the scope of this set of rules and standards. Therefore there are
individual standards created for these which are

9 Pressure and Vacuum Drainage, Compressed Air Flushed


Wastewater Transport Pipelines, Wastewater Pumping Stations
with Pressure Pipelines
On this subject the following European Standards are valid in the field of drainage
systems outside buildings:

DIN EN 1671Pressure sewerage systems outside buildings

DIN EN 1091Vacuum sewerage systems outside buildings

These are to be supplemented in the future by residual standard specifications in the


form of revisions of ATV Standard ATV-A 116 and are:

ATV-DVWK-A 116 Part 1 Vacuum drainage systems outside buildings

ATV-DVWK-A 116 Part 2 Pressure drainage systems outside buildings

The following will be dealt with in a further document:

ATV-DVWK-A 116 Part 3 Compressed air flushed wastewater transport pipelines

Up until now a report has been available on the latter subject, which was published in KA
1/87.

Within buildings the following are to be noted

DIN EN 12109 Vacuum drainage systems inside buildings

For wastewater pumping stations with pressure pipelines attention is drawn to

DIN EN 752 Part 6 Pumping installations

together with the Standard

ATV-DVWK-A 134 Planning and construction of wastewater pumping facilities

10 Private Property Drainage


The harmonisation, initiated by the EG (EU) Commission 1991, of sets of technical rules
and standards in Europe (EU with EFTA, CEFTA and other associated members of CEN)
for wastewater, differentiates

Drainage systems
September 2001 50
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
- outside buildings, and
- inside buildings.

For drainage systems outside buildings the follow series of standard specifications
applies

DIN EN Parts 1 to 7,

within buildings

DIN EN 12056 Parts 1 to 6 apply.

There is a duty to take over the European standard specification so that

DIN 1986

previously alone applicable in Germany is to be adapted and reissued as a so-called


residual standard specification.

In private property drainage systems there are connection-, drop-, collector- and house
drains to be dimensioned. With this it is not only the undisrupted removal of discharged
wastewater which has to be guaranteed, but also that the air carried can also be
transported.

11 Cost Aspects
The consequent application of the dimensioning principles laid down in the standard aid
the production of operationally suitable systems and, with this, the minimisation of
subsequent costs. All calculation methods given contain sufficient information on justified
deviations (opening stipulations). This applies in particular for the proposal of working
using an individual or global concept with dimensioning or performance verification.

Appendix
As a series of new subjects had to be dealt with and existing details had to be presented
comprehensively with the revision of ATV-A 110, the working group considered
somewhat broader information on the fundamentals and prerequisites to be necessary.
In order not to prejudice the clarity of the standard, this is separated from the actual text
and summarised in this appendix.

A1 Rules in accordance with Din EN 752, Part 4

General

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.1.1)

For the calculation of turbulent flows in drains and sewers, the equations from Prandtl-
Colebrook22) and Manning-Strickler23) are recommended.

Prandtl-Colebrook Equation

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.1.2)

The flow rate in circular shaped, completely filled pipes is calculated in accordance with
the equation:

 k 2.51 ⋅ ν 
v = − 2 ⋅ (2gDJE ⋅ log10 ⋅  + (66)
 3.71 ⋅ D D (2GJ ) 
 E 

With:
v the average velocity over the flow cross-section [m/s];
g acceleration due to gravity [m/s2];
D the internal diameter of the pipe [m];
JE energy gradient (energy loss per unit length) [-];
k the hydraulic roughness of the pipeline [m];
ν the kinematic viscosity of the fluid [m2/s]

For partial filling or noncircular pipes the flow rate is calculated according to Eqn. (66), in
which D is replaced by 4Rh. With this, Rh is the hydraulic radius (flow face surface
divided by the wetted perimeter).

Manning-Strickler Equation

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.1.3)

The flow rate for circular shaped and noncircular shaped cross-sections is calculated
using the following equation for partial and complete filling:
2/3 1/ 2
v = KR h JE (67)

________________
22)
This equation is called the Colebrook-White Equation in the English version and Colebrook Equation in the French version.
23)
This equation is called the Manning Equation in the English version and Manning-Strickler Equation in the French version.

September 2001 59
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
With:
K the velocity coefficient according to Manning-Strickler [m1/3/s];
Rh the hydraulic radius [m];
JE energy gradient (energy loss per unit length) [-].

Energy losses in pipelines

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.2.1)

The hydraulic roughness of the pipeline (k) or the velocity coefficient take into account
energy losses due to pipe materials, the pipe connections and the sewer film.

Local energy losses

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.2.2)

In addition to the energy losses described under “General”, further losses occur with
combining, changes of cross-section, shafts, bends and other fittings. In case these
losses are calculated directly the following equation is to be used:

kLv 2
hL =
2g

with

hL the local energy loss [m],


kL the loss coefficient [1],
v the flow rate [m/s],
g acceleration due to gravity [m/s2].

Total energy losses

(corresponds with DIN EN 752-4, Sect. 9.2.3, Paras 1 to 3)

there are two procedures for the determination of the total energy loss:

- local energy losses and the energy losses in the pipelines are added,
- taking into account the local energy losses by assuming a larger hydraulic roughness
of the pipeline with the calculation of the energy losses

If recommended hydraulic roughnesses are used for pipelines or velocity coefficients, it


is to be clarified whether local energy losses are taken into account in these. For a
roughness k values of 0.03 mm to 3.0 m are applied, for the velocity coefficient K values
from 70 m1/3s-1 to 90 m1/3s-1 Details on this are pointed out in DIN EN 752 Sect. 4 and are
contained in documents listed in DIN EN Appx. 4.

If long-term deposits cannot be avoided then the anticipated energy loss as a result of
reduced cross-section is to be taken into account in the calculation of the energy losses.

Velocity calculations according to Eqns. (66) and (67) can be compared approximately
using the following equation:

September 2001 60
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
1
 32  6  3.7D 
K = 4 ⋅ g ⋅   ⋅ log10   (68)
D  k 

with

K the velocity coefficient according to Manning-Strickler in m1/3/s,


g acceleration due to gravity [m/s2],
D the internal diameter of the pipe in m,
k the hydraulic roughness of the pipeline in m.

A2 Compilation of partial filling curves; summary of profile groups; designation of


profiles, which deviate from DIN 4263

The calculation of discharge processes with partial filling is extensive because, in a


partially filled sewer pipe the filling height as initial value, is not known. For steady state,
uniform discharge - energy line and water level profile run parallel to the sole (Fig. 2), so
that filling curves can be used with which the partial filling values are based on complete
filling. For partial filling conditions between h/d from some 0.8 (depending on slight
differences according to profile type) up to 1.0 steady state, uniform discharge is
practically impossible (QT/QV > 1.0). Therefore for this range there are no partial filling
curves given. With non-uniform discharge a calculation of the water surface profile is
always required, with which, naturally, the range 0.8 ≤ h/d ≤ 1.0 can be dealt with
mathematically as then one is not concerned with normal water depths.

The degree of filling is without dimension. With circular pipes H = d. As the profile height,
which is always measured perpendicular to the pipe axis, is a constant value
independent of slope, the filling height must also be referred to the perpendicular to the
pipe axis (see also Eqn. (14)).

The creation of a partial filling curve for steady state discharge processes thus is reduced
to the calculation of geometrical relationship values for certain shapes of profile. In
accordance with Eqns. 16 and 17, the relationship values AT/AV and rhy,T/rhy,V are
required for the different degrees of filling.

The partial filling values for circular, oval and tapering cross-sections are to be taken
from Figs. 13 to 15 as well as Tables 14 to 19.

For non-tabulated cross-sections the partial filling values for A and rhy = A/lP are to be
recorded and evaluated analytically or using plane geometry.

The following example serves to illustrate dealing with the thus obtained partial filling
curve:

Dry weather discharge: QT = 38 l/s


September 2001 61
ATV-DVWK-A 110E
Combined discharge: Qm = 1500 l/s
Sole gradient: JSo = 2.5 ‰
Operational roughness: kb = 1.5 mm
Sewer profile: Circular DN 1200

Required: hT and vT for dry weather and combined discharges.

Discharge quantity according to Eqns. (12) and (20):

Qv = 1897 l/s, in which vv = 1.68 m/s

Dry weather discharge:

QT 38
= = 0.020
Q v 1897

hT
= 0.095; hT = 0.095 ⋅ 1.20 = 0.12 m
d

vT
= 0.413; vT = 0.413 ⋅ 1.68 = 0.69 m/s
vv

Combined wastewater discharged:

Q m 1500 Q
= = 0.79 = T
Qv 1897 Qv

hT
= 0.674; hT = 0.674 ⋅ 1.20 = 0.81 m
d

vT
= 1.103; vT = 1.103 ⋅ 1.68 = 1.85 m/s
vv

In Sect. 3.1.2 of the Standard it was pointed out that, for geometrically similar profile
shapes, the partial filling curves can be combined. It is thus recommended, under the
following listed profile shapes and their numbering (see Figs 16 and 17), to proceed as
follows:

Circular profile curve for Profile Nos.: 1; 4 and 5

Oval profile curve for Profile Nos.: 2; 6; 7; 8 and 15

Tapering profile curve for Profile Nos.: 3; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13 and 14

A3 Calculation of backwater curves, water surface profile curves

In Sect. 3.2.1.3 it has already been explained that the discharge in open channels, as a
rule, takes place unevenly, that is for the flow depth the following applies h = f(x) which is
to be determined via Eqn. 23.

Possible water surface curves are sketched in Fig. 18 under the assumption that
hn ≤ 0.8d for subcritical and supercritical normal outflow. The water surface profiles

A4 Enlargement factor fair

The dimension fAir, required in Sect. 7 - Steep Stretches - Eqn (55), for the determination
of the air transfer with steep stretches, dependent on sole gradient diameter and
operational roughness is developed and published24) by P. Volkart, Zürich. The diagrams
required for the application of the standard are given below; interpolation can be applied
for deviating kb values.

An example calculation is given in 25).

A5 Section of a λ-Re Diagram (Moody Diagram)


During the preparation of this standard it was considered to be sensible and necessary to
enlarge the Moody Diagram (see Fig.1) and to reproduce more values for the parameter
d/k. This is carried out for the range

105 ≤ Re ≤ 107

A6 Sand roughness, ripple roughness


The employment of the Prandtl-Colebrook equation for the determination of friction loss
assumes technically rough wall conditions, i.e. a statistically seen random distribution of
roughness investigations on the pipe wall. Diverging forms of roughness produce
deviating friction losses.
In the case of the sand roughness (according to Nikuradse) smaller losses occur in the
transition range; in the case of ripple roughness, that is systematic roughness occurring
transversely to the direction of flow, in part significantly higher losses occur. With regard
to the mathematical approaches and applicability attention is drawn to the literature26) 27).

A7 Linkage calculation Prandtl-Colebrook/Manning-Strickler

One flow formula still employed today is stated by Manning and later confirmed
experimentally by Strickler. As proven by28), Eqn. 19 according to Manning-Strickler is, in
certain ranges, almost identical with the Prandtl-Colebrook formula (Eqn. 13). Namely, if
the discharge is in the completely rough zone, equivalent to

k > 30 υ (Q ⋅ (g ⋅ JE)2)-1/5

and in the range of relevant roughness of

2000 > d/k > 20

then the deviations in the throughflow Q between the two Eqns. 19 and 13 are smaller
than ± 5 %. If both the above given criteria are met then, with the aid of the formula

k St ⋅ k 1/ 6
= 8. 2
g1/ 2

a direct relationship between the hydraulically effective wall roughness k according to


Prandtl-Colebrook and the coefficient kSt according to Manning-Strickler is created. It
should be noted that both k as well as kSt only define the wall roughness and are
independent of the other flow parameters. Table 20 shows the relationship between k
and kSt.

A further approximation for the conversion of kST to k and vice versa is given in DIN EN
752 Part 4 under Sect. 9.2.3 29) as
1/ 6
 32   3.71 ⋅ d 
k St = 4 g⋅  ⋅ lg   (69)
 d   k 

The approximation formula also directly covers the influence of the relative roughness
d/k.

A8 Example calculation for the individual concept

Given

Impounded combined wastewater sewer DN 500 (h/d > 1.0) with special shafts.
Section length L = 61 m, of which one shaft = 1 m
Individual pipe length l = 1.25 m (old stock)
Per section 10 inflow fittings din = 150 mm

Sought

kb (mm)
(Note: in accordance with Sect. 4.3 b) due to impounding kb cannot be taken from
Table 4).

Loss coefficients

1. Loss coefficient ζL according to Table 5 (Sect. 4.2.1)


ζL for DN 500 = 0.1

2. Loss coefficient ζPC according to Table 6 (Sect. 4.2.2)


ζPC for DN 500 = 0.003

3. Loss coefficient ζi according to Table 7 (Sect. 4.2.3)


ζi for din/H = 150/500 = 0.3 : 0.004

4. Loss coefficient ζfd,S according to Table 9 (Sect. 4.2.5)


ζfd,S for impounded shafts without diversion: 0.85

Calculation

a) Applying k = 0.1 mm for the effective wall roughness and v = 0.8 m/s for the flow rate
(comp. 4.3), λ from Eqn. (10) or Fig. 23 is
λ = 0.0162 (resistance coefficient as a result of natural roughness)
The sum of all loss coefficients is
Σ ni ⋅ ζ = 60 / 1.25 ⋅ 0.01 + 60 / 1.25 ⋅ 0.003 + 10 ⋅ 0.004 + 0.85 = 1.514
The resistance coefficient λb as a result of operational roughness according to
Eqn. (6) is now

λb = 0.0162 + 0.5/60 ⋅ 1.514 = 0.0288

λb applied in Eqn. (35) gives

0 .5 1
2.51 ⋅ 1.31 ⋅ 10 −6 
k b = 14.84 ⋅ 
⋅ 10 2 0.0288
− 
4  0.8 ⋅ 0.5 ⋅ 0.0288 
 
k b = 1.855 (1.1317 ⋅ 10 −3 − 0.04844 ⋅ 10 −3 )
k b = 2.01 mm for the given impounded pipeline

b) With the conversion of the special shafts into control shafts (by raising the benching)
kb improves as follows:

Σ ni ⋅ ζ = 1.514 − 0.85 + 0.25 (ζ fd,C from Table 8) = 0.914


λb = 0.0162 * 0.5/60 ⋅ 0.914 = 0.0238
kb = 0.97 mm

c) With additional channel covering the kb value again improves as follows:

Σ ni ⋅ ζ = 1.514 − 0.85 + 0.05


ζ(fd,C) from Table 8) = 0.714
λb = 0.0162 + 0.5/60 ⋅ 0.714 = 0.0222
kb = 0.71 mm
