(c) A rough analogy to compressible gas flow in a nozzle (Fig. 9.12) is open-channel flow over a bump, as in Fig. 10.9a. The behavior of the free surface is sharply different according to whether the approach flow is subcritical or supercritical. The height of the bump also can change the character of the results. For frictionless two-dimensional flow, sections 1 and 2 in Fig. 10.9a are related by continuity and momentum: V1y1 V2 1 2g V2y2 V2 2 2g y1 y2 h Eliminating V2 between these two gives a cubic polynomial equation for the water depth y2 over the bump: y3 2 V2y2 11 2g E2y2 2 0 where E2 V2 1 2g y1 h (10.39) This equation has one negative and two positive solutions if h is not too large. Its behavior is illustrated in Fig. 10.9b and depends upon whether condition 1 is on the upper or lower leg of the energy curve. The specific energy E2 is exactly h less than the approach energy E1, and p...
