Unformatted text preview: e the water depth correlates with the flow rate, is called a channel control point. These are the starting points for numerical analysis of floodwater profiles in rivers as studied, e.g., by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers [22]. EXAMPLE 10.10 | v v A rectangular channel 8 m wide, with a flow rate of 30 m3/s, encounters a 4-m-high sharp-edged dam, as shown in Fig. E10.10a. Determine the water depth 2 km upstream if the channel slope is S0 0.0004 and n 0.025. | e-Text Main Menu | Textbook Table of Contents | Study Guide Chapter 10 Open-Channel Flow H (From weir theory) ter wa k Bac e urv – (M 1) c yn = 3.20 m Y=4m Q = 30 m 3/s Q y?
