The two unknowns for steady flow are velocity V(x) and water depth y(x), where x is distance along the channel. Basic Differential Equation Consider the length of channel dx illustrated in Fig. 10.13. All the terms which enter the steady-flow energy equation are shown, and the balance between x and x dx is V2 2g y S0 dx dy dx or V2 2g S dx d dx V2 2g d S0 V2 2g y dy S (10.46) where S0 is the slope of the channel bottom (positive as shown in Fig. 10.13) and S is the slope of the EGL (which drops due to wall friction losses).
