* Open channel flow occurs in natural channels, such as rivers and streams and in manmade channels, as for storm water, waste water and irrigation water*. This course is about open channel flow, and in particular, about uniform open channel flow Open Chanel flow is that type of flow which is neither completely enclosed by the boundaries nor is under any external pressure but gravity. It is subjected to atmospheric pressure. e.g. Rivers, natural and artificial canals, streams, channels etc. Partially filled pipes flow is also an example of open channel flow. Types of open channel flow

The flow in an open channel takes place due to gravity that is achieved by providing a bed slope. The flow of liquid through the open channel can be of several types like steady and unsteady flow, laminar or turbulent flow or uniform or non-uniform flow and finally sub-critical, critical and supercritical flow. 1 https://goo.gl/FTU4fo For 90+ Fluid Mechanic Open Channel Flow is a type of fluid flow in a conduit with a free surface open to the atmosphere. Examples: rivers, streams, floods, irrigation, Drainage ditches, etc. Having a free surface of a flow is not always an open channel flow Examples of Open Channel Flow Â™The natural drainage of water through the numerous creek and river systems. Â™The flow of rainwater in the gutters of our houses. Â™The flow in canals, drainage ditches, sewers, and gutters along roads

For **example**, large **open** **channel** **flow** (e.g., large rivers) can be approximated as steady **flow** for time periods in which the **flow** changes are not significant. The principal methods of discharge measurement described below assume steady **flow** conditions, but in most natural systems, steady **flow** is only present for short time periods and illustrated with examples. The main topic of this course is uniform open channel flow, in which the channel slope, liquid velocity and liquid depth remain constant. First, however, several ways of classifying open channel flow will be presented and discussed briefly.

This happens when water enters and/or leaves the channel along the course of flow. An example of flow entering a channel would be a road side gutter. An example of flow leaving a channel would be an irrigation channel Open channel flow: Flow of liquid with a free surface through any passage with atmospheric pressure acting on its surface is known as open channel flow. The liquid flowing through any closed passage without touching the top can also treated as open channels. Examples: 1. Flow in natural waterfalls, river and streams. 2

About the examples. The following examples only cover open channel flow problems using the Gauckler-Manning-Strickler equation (commonly called Manning's equation) [Wikimedia] to calculate the missing parameters and the critical depth For steady, fully developed channel flow, the pressure distribution within the fluid is merely hydrostatic. 4 fExamples of Open Channel Flow The natural drainage of water through the numerous creek and river systems. The flow of rainwater in the gutters of our houses. The flow in canals, drainage ditches, sewers, and gutters along roads Figure 5-5. A uniform open-channel flow: the depth and the velocity profile is the same at all sections along the flow. 12 One kind of problem that is associated with uniform flow is what the channel slope will be if discharge Q, water depth d, and bed sediment size D are specified or imposed upon the flow Open-Channel Flow. In contrast to pipe flows, open channel flows are characterized by a free surface which is exposed to the atmosphere. The pressure on this boundary thus remains approximately constant irrespective of any changes in the water depth and the flow velocity. These free-surface flows occur commonly in engineering practice, and. flow. At a larger depth the same discharge may be delivered through the section with a smaller velocity and a higher specific energy than a critical depth. It is known as subcritical flow. For a given value of specific energy, E1, the discharge may pass through the channel section at either depth d1 (supercritical flow) or d2 (subcritical flow)

Thus open channel flow may occur regardless of the type of conduit in which it is occurring i.e. an open channel flow may exist in a pipe, if it is flowing partially full. In practice flow in sewers, canals, streams and gutters is exposed to atmospheric pressure and hence is an example of open channel flow Chapter 1 - Open Channel Flow - Introduction to Open Channel Flow. An open channel is a conduit in which a liquid flows with a free surface.

Water flow rate calculations for uniform open channel flow are typically made with the Manning equation. The Manning equation gives an empirical relationship among the open channel water flow rate; the channel slope, hydraulic radius and Manning roughness coefficient; and the cross-sectional area of flow. The Manning equation is given for U.S. units and for S.I. units Flow on an inclined open channel 543 We do not write the fluid density ! in the equations as it is a factor in each term, so that we can cancel it.

Open channels are usually designed for uniform or normal flow conditions. Designing an open channel involves the selection of channel alignment, size and shape of the channel, longitudinal slope, and the type of lining material Communication **Channels**. In communications, a **channel** is the means of passing information from a sender to a recipient. Determining the most appropriate **channel**, or medium, is critical to the effectiveness of communication. **Channels** include oral means such as telephone calls and presentations, and written modes such as reports, memos, and email The standard step method (STM) is a computational technique utilized to estimate one-dimensional surface water profiles in open channels with gradually varied flow under steady state conditions. It uses a combination of the energy, momentum, and continuity equations to determine water depth with a given a friction slope (), channel slope (), channel geometry, and also a given flow rate

pipe flow it connects the elevations to which the water would rise in gi- ezometer tubes along the pipe. The energy gradient is at a distance equal to the velocity head above the hydraulic gradient. In both open and pipe flow the fall of the energy gradient for a given length of channel or pipe represents the loss of energy by friction The next topic we'll cover in hydraulics is flow in open channels. First of all, we'll look at different flow types, and then the equations for predicting uniform flow, the Manning equation, and then do some examples. Flow in open channels refers to any flow with a free surface. And in hydraulics, of course, we're mostly looking at, flow of water Example. A rancher needs to install a flume in a channel to measure his water right and he knows the following information: Channel shape: Rectangular; Channel depth: 1-feet (at maximum flow) Channel width: 3-feet; Flow rate: 9-cubic feet/sec (which gives us a velocity of 3-cubic feet/sec as Q (flow rate) = A (area) * V (velocity), A = 3*1). Open Channel Flow Introduction. Open-channel flow, a branch of hydraulics and fluid mechanics, is a type of liquid flow within a conduit with a free surface, known as a channel. The other type of flow within a conduit is pipe flow. These two types of flow are similar in many ways but differ in one important respect: the free surface 1 illustrates the energy and hydraulic grade lines for open channel and pressure flow in pipes. As illustrated in Figure 1, if the HGL is above the inside top (crown) of the pipe, pressure flow conditions exist. Conversely, if the HGL is below the crown of the pipe, open channel flow conditions exist

- Any particular example of open channel flow will be critical, subcritical, or supercritical flow. In general, supercritical flow is characterized by high liquid velocity and shallow flow, while subcritical flow is characterized by low liquid velocity and relatively deep flow. Critical flow is the dividing line flow condition between subcritical.
