Gutter refers to the concave part between the two crotches of the roof of a building. Roof drainage is divided into organized drainage and unorganized drainage (free drainage). Organized drainage generally collects rainwater into a gutter and then drains it from a rainwater pipe. The gutter that collects rainwater is called a gutter. The following introduces the size, calculation, and the difference between gutter and gutter.
1. The eaves with organized drainage on single-span buildings are eaves. For multi-span buildings, the eaves on the side are called eaves. Eaves is an organized drainage device installed separately for the eaves of old-fashioned building roofs and horizontal grooved drainage ditch under the eaves. It is used to receive rainwater from the roof and is then led to the ground by vertical pipes. Materials can be selected: bamboo, iron sheet, linoleum, prefabricated concrete channel plate, aluminum plate, etc.
2. The middle span used for drainage is called the gutter. The gutter refers to the roof of modern buildings. Generally, cast-in-situ reinforced concrete is used for integral casting of the roof. It is set along the outer wall of the house, and the slope is lower than the roof, and the uncovered groove is exposed. The ditch is organized to collect rainwater, which is led to the ground by vertical pipes. The gutter is divided into an inner gutter and an outer gutter, and the main outer wall is the boundary.
In short, there is no clear boundary between gutters and gutters, and they are used for organized drainage. The actual functions of gutters and gutters are the same, but the positions are different, and the methods and algorithms are the same.
