The Engineering of Culverts

Featured Video Play Icon

Manmade infrastructure often interferes with natural waterways, which is one reason civil engineers turn to culverts, those pipes and concrete tunnels you often see beneath roadways. As simple as they may seem, there’s a lot of engineering that has to go into these artificial waterways to keep flows from backing up and flooding roads. In this video from Practical Engineering, you’ll learn about some of those factors and see through demos just how they impact the flow. (Image and video credit: Practical Engineering)
