# Design of Desanders DKHPP

Input
Q = 7.35 m3/s (2 desanders)
Grain Dia dcr = 0.2 mm

From Fig. 1
Source:-
Standardization of civil engineering works of small hydropower plants

## W = Settling velocity of sand in flowing water (m/s)

Wo = Settling velocity of sand in quiescent water (m/s)
Vmc = Critical mean flow

W = 0.022 m/s
Wo = 0.03 m/s
Vmc = 0.21 m/s
By application of the physics in a settling basin, following relationship can be given:

Q
Ls v s =hv=
Bs
Ls = length of sandtrap
Bs = width of sandtrap
h = assumed water depth [m]

## The following criteria can be applied as rule of thumb:

Ls Fig. 1 Based on CAMP Formula
B s<
