Box Culvert Headwalls
FP McCann offers a bespoke headwall solution suitable for box culverts. These headwalls are made up of a number of precast panels and tied with an in-situ stitch.
Internal Dimensions (Based on flat invert culvert units)
Key: Flow area m²/ Discharge rate m³/sec
Please note: These figures are a guide only and will be dependent on the mould configuration used in manufacture. Discharge rates are calculated using Colebrooke-White equation for a fully wetted perimeter under uniform flow conditions and assuming a flat invert culvert unit. The assumed laying gradient (s) is 1:1000 with a roughness co-efficient (k) of 0.3. Where different values maybe required, please contact the office number below to discuss your specific requirements. The hydraulic design of a box culvert should always be undertaken by the overall scheme designer, as they are able to take into account the upstream and downstream conditions and other parameters such as freeboard, restriction due to silt build-up and need for the culvert to be free flowing at all times. Due to the lack of this information, FP McCann will only give discharge rates for an idealised culvert, which may not suit the local conditions.
