elevation drop in m/km.
For the aqueduct of Prob. 10.22, if the slope is 0.0004
and the discharge is 40 m3/s, use the Moody-chart formulation (10.15a) to estimate the normal depth.
A riveted-steel channel slopes at 1:500 and has a V shape
with an included angle of 80°. Find the normal depth if
the flow rate is 900 m3/h.
The equilateral-triangle channel in Fig. P10.25 has constant slope S0 and constant Manning factor n. Find Qmax
and Vmax. Then, by analogy with Fig. 10.6b, plot the ratios Q/Qmax and V/Vmax as a function of y/a for the complete range 0 y/a 0.866. a a
