The article focuses on the solutions for the design of sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) in Great Britain. Topics include the installation of crate systems to control heavy rains and return it to the natural resources, the soakaway or storage applications, and the infiltration or attenuation system.

    The performance of a capillary barrier cover as a cover system is affected by the ability of the capillary barrier to store water. To increase the water storage of a capillary barrier cover, the dual capillary barrier (DCB) concept is proposed. The objective of this paper is to investigate the...
