What should be the water depth asymptotically far upstream? Backwater curve 10 ft 15 ft slope of 0.15°. If the V-notch weir has 30° and Y 50 cm, estimate, from gradually varied theory, the water depth 100 m upstream. P10.127 A horizontal gravelly earth channel 2 m wide contains a full-width Crump weir (Fig. P10.122) 1 m high. If the weir is not drowned, estimate, from gradually varied theory, the flow rate for which the water depth 100 m upstream will be 2 m. P10.128 A rectangular channel 4 m wide is blocked by a broadcrested weir 2 m high, as in Fig. P10.128. The channel is horizontal for 200 m upstream and then slopes at 0.7° as shown. The flow rate is 12 m3/s, and n 0.03. Compute the water depth y at 300 m upstream from gradually varied theory. L=? y ( x) P10.124 y? P10.125 The Tupperware dam on the Blackstone River is 12 ft high, 100 ft wide, and sharp-edged. It creates a backwater...
