Questions Example 1: One energy, two depths - Review Example 2: Minimum energy (critical depth) Example 3: Sluice Gate (conservation of E ) Example 4: Sluice Gate (concept of choke) Example 5: Step Problem – subcritical flow Example 6: Step Problem – supercritical flow Today’s Agenda

Example 1: Let Q = 10 ft 3 /s, w = 1 foot So q = 10/1 = 10 ft 2 /s We could let y vary over a range of values (say 0.4 feet to 10 feet). The resulting relationship between E and y looks like: y gy q E + = 2 2 2

How can there be two depths that possess the same energy? E is sum of kinetic and energy sources. One depth has high kinetic, low potential energy One depth has high potential, low kinetic energy Which is which? How do we find these two depths?
