Webinar - Tractive Force Design for Self-Cleaning Sanitary Sewers

Hosted by KY-TN WEA Collections Committee
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CT
1.0 CEU approved in TN/Approval requested in KY


Solids transport in sewers has generally been addressed in hydraulic design by providing minimum slopes. A more valid basis for determining solids transport capacity is tractive force design. It is based on a theoretically sound analysis of forces needed to move submerged solids. The latest edition of the ASCE/WEF Gravity Sanitary Sewer design manual includes tables and equations for incorporating tractive force design methods into pipe sizing and minimum slope determination. Additionally, Tennessee’s Design Criteria for Sewers and Wastewater Pumping Stations indicates that the tractive force design method is preferred over the traditional method for reasons of economical design and long-term maintenance.   
This webinar presents the principles of tractive force design, gives instructions on how to use it, and provides some examples of situations where tractive force design of gravity sewers can provide better self-cleansing results than traditional conventional methods. Additionally, the webinar will discuss how the elements of tractive force design can be used to analyze existing sewers.
The webinar has been approved for 1.0 CEU in TN.  Approval has also been requested in KY.
