If the channel surface is painted steel and the depth is 35 cm, determine (a) the Froude number, (b) the critical depth, and (c) the critical slope for uniform flow. y θ θ P10.41 P10.42 P10.43 P10.44 P10.45 P10.46 25° Suppose that the side angles of the trapezoidal channel in Prob. 10.39 are reduced to 15° to avoid earth slides. If the bottom flat width is 8 ft, (a) determine the normal depth and (b) compare the resulting wetted perimeter with the solution P 24.1 ft from Prob. 10.39. (Do not reveal this answer to friends still struggling with Prob. 10.39.) What are the most efficient dimensions for a riveted-steel rectangular channel to carry 4.8 m3/s at a slope of 1 900? What are the most efficient dimensions for a half-hexagon cast-iron channel to carry 15,000 gal/min on a slope of 0.16°? What is the most efficient depth for an asphalt trapezoidal channel, with sides sloping at 45°, to carry 3 m3/s on a slope of 0.0008? It is suggested that a channel which affords minimum erosion has a half-sine-wave shape, as in Fig. P10.46. The loc...
