Analysis and Design of a Siphon Aqueduct
Kollipara Parvathi Manjusha,  G.Lalitha,  B.Naresh
An aqueduct structure is a complex structure as compared to bridge, as it takes canal water across stream and canal traffic over the trough. The water tightness and free expansions - contractions of trough, canal water load as well as traffic load on the trough involves complex load combinations, for which the superstructure and substructure of it is required to be planned and designed. The object of this research is to develop an optimized hydraulic design, by considering various theories which are applicable.
In this research we are considering an aqueduct which is located in Puligadda and it is designed as a syphon aqueduct for reducing the damages during floods and to avoid flood intensity across the delta areas which provide irrigation water to fertile soil in Diviseema. For this design the analysis is done by using STAAD.Pro software (trough side walls).
Keywords- Aqueduct, trough, total energy line(TEL),head loss(HL)
