Uniform Flow in a Partly Full Circular Pipe Consider the partially full pipe of Fig. 10.6a in uniform flow. The maximum velocity and flow rate actually occur before the pipe is completely full. In terms of the pipe radius R and the angle up to the free surface, the geometric properties are | v v A | sin 2 2 R2 e-Text Main Menu | P 2R Rh Textbook Table of Contents R 1 2 | sin 2 2 Study Guide 10.3 Efficient Uniform-Flow Channels R 669 R θ y R (a) 1.0 V Vmax 0.8 0.6 Q Qmax 0.4 0.2 Fig. 10.6 Uniform flow in a partly full circular channel: (a) geometry; (b) velocity and flow rate versus depth. 0.0 0.0 0.2 0.4 0.6 0.8 1.0 y D (b) The Manning formulas (10.19) predict a uniform flow as follows: V0 R 1 n2 sin 2 2 2/3 1/2 S0 Q sin 2 2 V0R2 For a given n and slope S0, we may plot these two relations versus There are two different maxima, as follows: Vma...
