Unformatted text preview: 3. Is H n the same on the uphill & downhill sides? Solution: The solution can be obtained by different methods, as explained in class. The quickest and easiest solution is to use the New and Improved OptManifold.exe computer program, as shown below: The New and Improved version of the program uses Hazen-Williams. Due to approximations and simplifying assumptions in the equations, the calculated value of H n is not exactly equal in the uphill and downhill parts of the lateral. The tree spacing is given as S p = 5.0 m. Make the downhill lateral 375-m long, and the uphill lateral will be 175 m in length (a slight adjustment on the calculation results). This gives 175/5 = 35 trees on the uphill side of the manifold, and 375/5 = 75 trees on the downhill side....
