problem 5) A 10-acre drainage area consists of 2-acre parking area (C = 0.9), 4 acres of lawn (C = 0.3) and remaining area with trees (C = 0.3). Intensity of 10 yr. design storm is 4 inches per hr. Compute the peak rate of runoff
problem 6) describe with diagrams storm water drainage system used for sub-surface drainage.
problem 7) State the considerations for grading of paved areas. Show the desired surface slopes with diagrams for road, pathway, pedestrian ramp and vehicular ramp.
problem 8) describe contour signatures with appropriate sketches.
problem 9) Draw a plan, cross section of a typical road (8 m wide + 1.5 m wide pathway + 1.5 m wide swale) and minimum 3 contour signatures for the same with reference spot level as 10 meter on the centerline of the road.

ii) Road crown: 0.10 m.
iii) Longitudinal slope for the swale: 4%.
iv) Pathway slope away from the road: 2%.
v) Curb height: 0.2 m.
vi) Swale depth: 0.10 m.
