Unformatted text preview: liquefaction of the silt will occur. In this calculation, assume that the exit gradient is directed vertically upward (a conservative assumption). (5) Estimate the unit discharge (q) from beneath the weir FORMULAE: v = k i i = Δ H / L q = k i A q = k H (n f / n d ) i c = ( γ – γ w ) / γ w...
