INTERA’s Dr. Erik Anderson, PE, M.ASCE, Principal Engineer, has authored an article entitled, “Yield Equations for Bed-Mounted Infiltration Galleries”, in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Journal of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering. Dr. Anderson’s article was chosen as the Editor’s Choice for Issue 10 of the Journal.
The article explores the limitations of existing technical guidance for designing bed-mounted infiltration galleries used in water supply and irrigation projects. It critiques Driscoll's gallery yield equation and presents new equations that offer a more accurate representation of gallery flow conditions, addressing issues related to conservative results and incorporating filter layer and skin loss effects for improved design and analysis.
