(10.30): Q2 b2g yc 1/3 (30 m3/s)2 (8 m)2(9.81 m/s2) 1/3 1.13 m Since y(0) is greater than yc, the flow upstream is subcritical. Finally, for reference purposes, estimate the normal depth from the Chézy equation (10.19): Q 30 m3/s n 1.0 8yn (8 m)yn 0.025 8 2yn 2/3 byRh S1/2 0 2/3 (0.0004)1/2 By trial and error or EES solve for yn 3.20 m. If there are no changes in channel width or slope, the water depth far upstream of the dam will approach this value. All these reference values y(0), yc, and yn are shown in Fig. E10.10b. Since y(0) yn yc, the solution will be an M-1 curve as computed from gradually varied theory, Eq.
