Drop Manhole

Drop Manhole

It is a special type of manhole on a sewer line which is Constructed to provide a connection between a high-level branch sewer to a low-level main sewer. When, a branch sewer enters a manhole by, more than 0.5 to 0.6 m above the main sewer, the sewage is not allowed to fall directly into the manhole.

Drop Manhole

Instead, the sewage 0f the branch sewer is brought into the manhole of the main sewer either by inclined pipe (inclined at 45°) or through a downpipe (vertical pipe). In the former case, it is known a ramp while in the latter case it is known as a drop manhole. Fig. shows details of a circular drog manhole. The branch sewer is joined to the manhole of the main sewer through a vertical pipe (or drop pipe). The sewage coming from the branch sewer flows down in the vertical pipe and emerges out through a horizontal pipe just above the benching. A plug is provided at the point where the branch sewer, if prolonged straight, intersects with the vertical wall of the manhole. The prolonged length of branch sewer, beyond the vertical pipe, serves as the inspection arm. After opening the plug, it can be used for inspecting or cleaning the branch sewer.

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, and sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage faces are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform.

Types Of Current Collector

Current Collector A current collector is a device used to collect electrical current from a moving conductor, such as a train or a trolley. It is typically used in electric vehicles, such as trains and trams, to transfer power from an overhead power source to the vehicle's electric motor. The current collector consists of a sliding contact, which is often made of carbon or copper, that makes contact with an overhead power source, such as an overhead catenary wire or a third rail. The sliding contact is mounted on the vehicle and is typically in the form of a pantograph or a trolley pole. The pantograph is a device with a metal frame and a spring-loaded arm that presses against the overhead power source. It is raised and lowered by the operator of the vehicle, and as it moves along the overhead power source it maintains contact and collects the electrical current. The trolley pole is a vertical pole that is mounted on the roof of the vehicle and has a horizontal arm that extends out
