L'aqueduc de Carthage
The Carthage Aqueduct
Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Tunis, Campus Universitaire, B.P. 37, 1002 Tunis, Tunisie
The hydraulic study of the Carthage Aqueduct has been undertaken. After determining the Strickler coefficient by a numeric method and an experimental method and the reconstruction of a length profile, we calculated the capacity of the Aqueduct. The town's consummation of water at the time of the romans, deduced from these results, was less than that of Rome and Pompei at the same period. But all show a great amount of waste, confirmed by the existence of highly developed sewerage networks.
