P10.12 (a) For laminar draining of a wide thin sheet of water on
pavement sloped at angle , as in Fig. P4.36, show that
the flow rate is given by
Q P10.13 P10.14 P10.15 P10.20 *P10.21 gbh3 sin
3 where b is the sheet width and h its depth. (b) By (somewhat laborious) comparison with Eq. (10.13), show that
this expression is compatible with a friction factor f
24/Re, where Re Vavh/ .
The laminardraining flow from Prob. 10.12 may undergo
transition to turbulence if Re 500. If the pavement
slope is 0.0045, what is the maximum sheet thickness, in
mm, for which laminar flow is ensured?
The Chézy formula (10.18) is independent of fluid density and viscosity. Does this mean that water, mercury,
alcohol, and SAE 30 oil will all flow down a given open
channel at the same rate? Explain.
The finishedconcrete channel of Fig. P10.15 is designed
for a flow rate of 6 m3/s at a normal depth of 1 m. Determine (a) the design slope of...
