Tank Overflow Discussion Paper

Unfortunately, there have been a number of people claiming to be consultants and experts that have been using the calculations for tank overflow (8.4.4 of AS/NZS 3500.1:2018) for roof gutter calculations and sizing. That method is not accepted by the AHSCA Research Foundation for the reasons set out in this report. View the report HERE
