Jump to navigationJump to search### 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:
