This study presents an analytical approach for solving both the upstream-to-downstream depth ratio, Y ¯, and the energy loss through junctions of equal-width subcritical flows over horizontal beds, based on three experimental test setups with junction angles, θ being 30°, 45°, and 60°.Under a known discharge ratio, Q ¯, between upstream and downstream of main channel.

Simulation of subcritical flow at open-channel junction Article in Advances in Water Resources 31(2) February with 48 Reads How we measure 'reads'. The configuration of open‐channel junctions controls local sedimentary processes, channel scour, and sidewall erosion through its influence on the flow patterns established as confluent streams compete for limited channel capacity.

A novel SPH-SWE approach for modelling subcritical and supercritical flows at open channel junctions Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Hydro-environment Research. A clear, up-to-date presentation of the principles of flow in open channels A fundamental knowledge of flow in open channels is essential for the planning and design of systems to manage water resources.

Open-Channel Flow conveys this knowledge through the use of practical problems that can be solved either analytically or by simple numerical methods 5/5(1). Open channel flowmeters measure the flow of liquids in open channels and are particularly relevant to measuring the flow of water in rivers as part of environmental management schemes.

The normal procedure is to build a weir or flume of constant width across the flow and measure the velocity of flow and the height of liquid immediately before the weir or flume with Open channel junctions with supercritical flow book.

A detailed solutions manual is available to instructors assigning this text as the primary book in the course.

Introduction Flow of a liquid may take place either as open channel flow or pressure flow. Pressure flow takes place in a closed conduit such as a pipe, and pressure is the primary driving force for the Size: KB. In our rectangular open channel flow calculation, most of the combinations of inputs have analytic (closed form) solutions to compute the unknown variables; however, two require numerical solutions ("Enter Q, n, S, y" and "Enter Q, n, S, b").

Our numerical solutions utilize a cubic solver. All of our calculations utilize double precision. Supercritical flow at channel junctions is characterised by a distinct standing wave pattern. This paper aims at describing its features and defining the main dimensions of three waves. Wave C is a junction wave located at the rear of the junction point and may be compared with the wave due to an abrupt wall by: 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.

This completely up-to-date text includes several features not found in any other book. • The approaching channel should be straight so that the velocity profile is uniform. Surging, turbulent, or unbalanced flows must be conditioned before the flow enters the flume.

• Any bends, dips, elbows, or flow junctions upstream of the flume must be sufficiently far upstream so that the flow has is well distributed and non-turbulent. Experimental data on typical profiles of free surface and channel bottom pressure for a supercritical flow over a sill are reported.

This flow is shown to have, along with the known critical depth, two other characteristic depths, one of which is at the channel exit to the atmosphere and the other determines conditions under which the disturbances propagate well Cited by: 6. Open Channel Flow Open channel: a conduit for flow which has a free surface Free surface: interface between two fluids of different density Characteristics of open channel flow: • pressure constant along water surface • gravity drives the motion • pressure is approximately hydrostatic • flow is turbulent and unaffected by surface tension.

OPEN CHANNEL FLOW General The design analysis for all channels proceeds according to the basic principles of open channel flow (see (2), (3), (4) and (5)). The basic principles of fluid mechanics — continuity, momentum and energy — can be applied to open channel flow with the additional complication that the.

Hydraulic Jumps and Supercritical & Non-uniform Open Channel Flow Harlan H. Bengtson, PhD, P.E. COURSE CONTENT 1. Introduction Many examples of open channel flow can be approximated as uniform flow allowing the Manning equation to be used.

Non-uniform flow calculations are needed, however, in some open channel flow situations, where the flow is. The concepts of supercritical, subcritical and critical flow, and calculations related to those three regimes of flow, are needed for non-uniform open channel flow analysis and calculations.

This 2 PDH online course is intended for hydrologists, civil engineers, hydraulic engineers, highway engineers and environmental engineers.

When the channel slope becomes flat, the flow can become subcritical causing the formation of hydraulic jump which further causes erosion to channel bed.

Owing to swift flow of water in channels accommodating supercritical flow, there is considerable safety risk in the event of passengers falling into the channel and washed away to downstream.

Description Open channel junctions with supercritical flow EPUB

These models provide the necessary interior boundary equations governing combining subcritical open-channel junctions. Given the inflow discharges and a downstream boundary condition, these models calculate the upstream depths for each of the incoming channels.

studied the Cited by: GRADUALLY-VARIED FLOW IN CHANNEL SYSTEMS. The gradually-varied flow calculations can also be used for channel systems. A schematic of a channel system is shown in Figure If the flow in the system is subcritical, we first calculate the profile in channel D (most downstream channel) and proceed in the upstream direction.

open channels, R can be approximated by the mean flow depth (d), which is equal to the flow area (A) divided by the top width (T). In the absence of local hydraulic controls, the hydraulic gradient is usually equal to the channel slope for high in-bank flows.

Always remember this It is the slope of the energy grade line (EGL). Period. Choose any two points along a pipe or open channel for example. Add up the kinetic energy, V 2 /2g, and the potential energy, (Y) at each point. In the context of open channel flows Fr 1 supercritical flow, and Fr = 1 critical flow.

This approach is directly analogous to the Mach Number (M) description of a compressible flow. This defines the ratio of the gas velocity to the sonic velocity, such that M 1 supersonic flow. Characteristics of flows around curved sections of open channels at velocities greater than the wave velocity (that is, F > 1) are discussed in this paper.

In simple curves such flows produce cross-wave disturbance patterns which also persist for long distances in the downstream tangent. These disturbance patterns indicate nonequilibrium conditions whose basic cause (when F >.

There is a vast literature, dating back to Ippen and co-workers [15,16,17], on understanding the mechanics of high-velocity flow in open channels of variable width, with an emphasis on the design of hydraulic structures operating under supercritical conditions (e.g., the design of supercritical channel junctions [18,19] and channel expansions).Author: Luis Cueto-Felgueroso, David Santillán, Jaime H.

García-Palacios, Luis Garrote.Complex flow behaviors in open channels have been of interest to researchers and practitioners for well over years. One such behavior encountered in spillway and channel applications is the oblique wave patterns occurring in supercritical flow around channel bends, such as is presented in Figure 1 (Henderson ).
