Flow through open channels.
K. G. Ranga Raju
However, for individual channel reaches e. Uniform means that the channel is prismatic. Return to discussion. The fundamental types of flow dealt with in open-channel hydraulics are: Time as the criterion Steady flow — The depth of flow does not change over time, or if it can be assumed to be constant during the time interval under consideration. This flow can be described using the continuity equation for continuous unsteady flow requires the consideration of the time effect and includes a time element as a variable.
Spatially varied or discontinuous flow — The discharge of a steady flow is non-uniform along a channel. Flow characteristics of PVC sewer pipe. Flow in open channels are discussed including classification of flow types and prediction of uniform flow by the Manning equation. Predictions of hydraulic jumps and flow over weirs are given.
Wilson, P. Hydraulics Report No. Any of the principal methods of discharge measurement outlined below can be used to measure open channel flow. A simplified introductory description of important topics such as flow in mobile bed channels and pollutant transport in open channels has also been included in the text. Spatially varied or discontinuous flow — The discharge of a steady flow is non-uniform along a channel. Partially filled pipes flow: partially filled pipes have flow which is not enclosed on all sides and air is present above it so is under atmospheric pressure.

H, HS, and HL flumes Gwinn and Parsons combine the sediment movement capabilities of a flume with the accuracy of a weir. Some methods are more accurate than others while some methods measure a large range of discharge. To ensure accuracy, area-velocity meters require a minimum water depth over the probe as specified by the manufacturer.
Many manufacturers sell pre-constructed H flumes with rating curves that provide the relationship between water level and discharge with ranges from 0. Weirs e. Unsteady flow — The depth of flow does change with time. Hydraulic design handbook. Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics.
Calculation of head loss due to friction and minor losses due to valves and other accoutrements are presented. The Darcy-Weisbach method is generally considered more accurate than the Hazen-Williams method.
Rivers, natural and artificial canals, streams, channels etc. Flow in open channels are discussed including classification of flow types and prediction of uniform flow by the Manning equation. Most meters do not correctly integrate negative i.
The following messages are displayed if the values entered result in an infeasible situation. Discharge at critical flow is solely dependent on the cross section. Major losses are due to friction between the moving fluid and the inside walls of the duct. This message can be displayed to both registered and non-registered users.
Erickson, J. Watkins, and S. The discharge may be estimated by measuring the water surface elevation just upstream of the critical section and converting it to discharge using a calibration curve, which is most often provided by the manufacturer.
The footnotes refer to specific values shown in the Manning n table above. Uniform flow can be steady or unsteady, depending on whether or not the depth changes with time, although unsteady uniform flow is rare.
Friction losses are calculated for laminar Poiseuille flow and turbulent flow using the Moody chart; examples include computation of pressure drop in laminar pipe flow and turbulent water flow. A compound weir and circular weir Addison both measure small discharge while also having the capacity to measure large discharge.
First, the slope of the channel bed or pipe is often assumed to approximate the energy grade line; second, the empirically defined roughness coefficient is often estimated from a table of values.
Therefore, these meters can produce erroneous data during small-discharge conditions and in situations with downstream obstructions in the flow such as a weir or debris that may cause negative velocities.

book. Flow through open channels by Srivastava is intended as a textbook, mainly for the undergraduate level; however, the content is also well suited for a first course at the graduate level when combined with complementary references.
The book is well written.
The basic Differences between pipe flow and open channel Flow are given below. Pipe Flow: Open I attach below the diagrams of velocity profile for both open and close channels. Thanks for your comment.
Flowing through pipe is always pipe flow. Write A Comment Cancel Reply. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next.
It is usually the flow in an Open Channels Surface Flow: The flow which is above the ground level is called surface flow. Ground Flow: The flow which is below the surface of the earth is called ground flow. Open channel flow is not completely enclosed by boundaries, unlike pipe flow.
Open channel is always under the action of gravity, while pipe can be under gravity. Apr 16, · Flow Classifications Depending on the Reynolds number, Re Laminar Flow (if Re ): ordinary flow in ordinary open channels. Transition Flow (if Open-Channel Flow conveys this knowledge through the use of practical problems that can be solved either analytically or by simple numerical methods that do not require the use of computer software.
