The thesis deals with the road drainage design. Effective road drainage is essential to
maintain the level of the road services as well as to ensure a safe road traffic.
The basics of rainfall-runoff modelling from urban areas are presented in the first part of the
thesis, followed bythe theoretical explanation of the road drainage to stress the importance of
coordinated design of horizontal road elements in the line with longitudinal profile and vice
versa. The following section presents a system of road inlets, which drains colleted rain
water through pipes and open ditches to the final recipients. The types of road inlets and
their basic characteristics as well as the most important factors to be considered in their
design are presented more detailed.
In the practical part of thesis we have developed a new software solution for calculating the
positions of the road inlets and determining the drainage divides between the cathcment
areas, based on the digital road model. Software solution was applied for the practical case,
showing the procedure of road design including drainage, with a combination of several
software solutions and the data exchange between them.
