This report describes a programme of experimental research to produce information on sloping pipes in inverted syphons and to give better design guidance. The publication is divided into two parts. The first part describes the experimental study and the method used to analyse the results and produce the design equation for the limit of deposition in sloping pipes. The second part of the report reviews existing data on inverted siphons and uses this information, together with the results of the experimental study, to provide general guidelines and recommendations for their hydraulic design. Particular attention is given to inverted siphons in gravity sewers because they tend to present the largest range of design problems.
