Hook Basin

The input variables required for this calculation is the following:

  • Shape of Dissipator -- The user can select 'Warped Wingwalls' or 'Trapezoidal'. See illustrations below for examples.
  • Flare Angle (Warped Wingwalls only)-- Flare angle per side of the basin.
  • Ratio of Length to A-hooks over Total Basin Length (Warped Wingwalls only)-- Distance from culvert exit to first row of hooks (A-HOOKS) divided by the total length of the basin.
  • Ratio of Width to A-hooks over Total Basin Length (Warped Wingwalls only)-- Distance between hooks in the first row divided by the basin width at the first row.
  • Ratio of Length to B-Hooks over Total Basin Length (Warped Wingwalls only)-- Distance from culvert exit to second row of hooks (B-HOOKS) divided by the total length of the basin.
  • Width for the Downstream End of the Basin (Warped Wingwalls only)
  • Basin Side Slope (Trapezoidal shape only) -- The user can select either '1.5 : 1' or '2 : 1'.
  • Basin Bottom Width (Trapezoidal shape only)


The next two figures show a hook basin with warped wingwalls:

Variables from the figure

  • W0 -- Outlet width
  • W1 -- Width at first hooks
  • W2 -- Distance between first hooks (row A)
  • W3 -- lateral spacing between A and B hook
  • W4 -- Width of hooks
  • W5 -- Width of slot in end sill
  • W6 -- approximately channel width
  • h4 -- Height of end sill
  • h5 -- Height to top of end sill
  • h6 -- Height to top of warped wingwall
  • ye -- Equivalent depth
  • L1 -- Distance to first hooks
  • L2 -- Distance to second hooks (row B)
  • LB -- Basin length

Variables from the figure

  • ß -- Angle of radius
  • r -- radius
  • h1 -- height to center of radius
