Unformatted text preview: Rapidly varied (multidimensional) Typically uniform flow is separated from rapidly varying flow by a region of gradually varied flow. Gradually varied flow can be analyzed by a first-order differential equation (Sec. 10.6), but rapidly varying flow usually requires experimentation or threedimensional potential theory. Flow Classification by Froude Number: Surface Wave Speed A second and very interesting classification is by dimensionless Froude number, which for a rectangular or very wide channel takes the form Fr V/(gy)1/2, where y is the GVF RVF GVF Uniform flow GVF RVF GVF | v v Fig. 10.3 Open-channel flow classified by regions of rapidly varying flow (RVF), gradually varying flow (GVF), and uniform-flow depth profiles.
