A given trapezoidal channel has the following dimensions: B=10m, m=1.5, y=3m, and is designed to carry 40 m3/s. Using the same cross-sectional area and side slopes, how much would the most efficient cross-section increase the present hydraulic radius and flow capacity? What would be the corresponding depth and bed width? Additional information n=0.030, S= 1° and Q=25m3/s Exercises 2. Derive the most economical section for rectangular / trapezoidal channel?

- 3. Optimal (efficient) channel cross section A section of a channel is said to be most economical when the cost of construction of the channel is minimum. But the cost of construction of a channel depends on excavation and the lining. A channel section is said to be efficient if it gives the maximum discharge for the given shape, area and roughness. The most hydraulically-efficient shape of channel is the one which can pass the greatest quantity of flow for any given area or, equivalently, the smallest area for a given quantity of flow. most economical section As the cost of construction(excavation, channel lining is directly related with the area of the channel & perimeter. Dp/dy=0

- 5. Velocity distribution in open channels The measured velocity in an open channel will always vary across the channel section because of friction along the boundary. Neither is this velocity distribution usually ax symmetric (as it is in pipe flow) due to the existence of the free surface. It might be expected to find the maximum velocity at the free surface where the sheer force is zero but this is not the case. The maximum Velocity is usually found just below the surface. Non scouring and Non silting velocity should have to be designed. Design consideration

- 8. 1.4. Uniform Flow in open channel Uniformflow(steady uniformflow) The main feature of uniform flow in an open channel is The discharge, area of flow, depth, and velocity remain constant throughout the reach The energy line, the water surface line, and the bed line all are parallel in other words, the slopes of the energy line (Sf), the hydraulic gradient line (Sw), and the bed line (So) are equal uniform flow is an exact balance between gravity and frictional forces This is so when there is an exact balance between the gravity and resistance forces 8
- 9. Uniform flow is considered to be steady only, since unsteady uniform flow is practically nonexistent. In natural streams, even steady uniform flow is rare, for rivers and streams in natural states scarcely ever experience a strict uniform flow condition. The results obtained from this assumption are understood to be approximate and general, but they offer a relatively simple and satisfactory solution to many practical problems. When flow occurs in an open channel, the water encounters resistance as it flows downstream. This resistance is generally counteracted by the components of gravity forces acting on the body of the water in the direction of motion. A uniform flow will be developed if the resistance is balanced by the gravity forces.

They are used for estimating velocity as well as discharge of channel flow. • The Continuity equation and manning formula are the two basic equations which are used for various problems of uniform flow computation. • the computation consist of discharge, velocity of flow, normal depth, roughness Coeffiecnt, channel slope, Size of cross section( A ,R, K).
