Unformatted text preview: Glenn E. Moglen Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering Virginia Tech Specific Energy: Critical Flow, Steps, and Constrictions CEE 4324/5984 Open Channel Flow Lecture 4 Questions? Brief Review: Critical Flow Equations and Sluice Gate Animation Example 4: Sluice Gate (concept of choke) Example 5: Step Problem subcritical flow Example 6: Step Problem supercritical flow Example 7: Step Problem supercritical flow Example 7: Negative Step problem Example 8: A step as a choke Example 9: A constriction (sub-critical) Example 10: A constriction (super-critical) Todays Agenda Critical Depth Equations - REVIEW Critical depth in a rectangular channel: Critical energy in a rectangular channel: Definition of Froude number in a rectangular channel: 3 / 1 2 = g q y c c c y E 5 . 1 = gy v F r = Sluice Gate Animation Example 4: Sluice Gate as a Choke Settings: q = 10.0 ft 2 /s Incoming flow depth is y 1 =4.94 feet Gate opening, y g is set to y g =0.50 feet Recall, alternate depth to y 1 =4.94 feet is y 2 = 0.59 feet (so y g < y 2 ) What is depth downstream of gate? Are any other depths changed? With E =5.0 feet, at the instant y g =0.50 feet what is unit discharge?
