1 OPEN-CHANNEL FLOW Open-channel flow is a flow of liquid (basically water) in a conduit with a free surface. That is a surface on which pressure is equal to local atmospheric pressure. P atm Free surface P atm
2 Classification of Open-Channel Flows Open-channel flows are characterized by the presence of a liquid-gas interface called the free surface. Natural flows: rivers, creeks, floods, etc. Human-made systems: fresh-water aquaducts, irrigation, sewers, drainage ditches, etc. pp atm

9 Kinds of Open Channel Canal Flume Chute Drop Culvert Open-Flow Tunnel
10 Kinds of Open Channel CANAL is usually a long and mild-sloped channel built in the ground.
11 Kinds of Open Channel FLUME is a channel usually supported on or above the surface of the ground to carry water across a depression.
12 Kinds of Open Channel CHUTE is a channel having steep slopes.
13 Kinds of Open Channel DROP is similar to a chute, but the change in elevation is affected in a short distance.
14 Kinds of Open Channel CULVERT is a covered channel flowing partly full, which is installed to drain water through highway and railroad embankments.
15 Kinds of Open Channel OPEN-FLOW TUNNEL is a comparatively long covered channel used to carry water through a hill or any obstruction on the ground.
16 Channel Geometry A channel built with constant cross section and constant bottom slope is called a PRISMATIC CHANNEL. Otherwise, the channel is NONPRISMATIC.
17 THE CHANNEL SECTION is the cross section of a channel taken normal to the direction of the flow. THE VERTICAL CHANNEL SECTION is the vertical section passing through the lowest or bottom point of the channel section. d The channel section (B-B) y The vertical channel section (A-A)
18 Geometric Elements of Channel Section THE DEPTH OF FLOW, y, is the vertical distance of the lowest point of a channel section from the free surface. y θ d h z θ Datum
19 Geometric Elements of Channel Section THE DEPTH OF FLOW SECTION, d, is the depth of flow normal to the direction of flow. y θ d θ is the channel bottom slope d ycosθ. h z Datum θ For mild-sloped channels y d.
20 Geometric Elements of Channel Section THE TOP WIDTH, T, is the width of the channel section at the free surface. THE WATER AREA, A, is the cross-sectional area of the flow normal to the direction of flow. T THE WETTED PERIMETER, P, is the length of the line of intersection of the channel wetted surface with a crosssectional plane normal to the direction of flow. THE HYDRAULIC RADIUS, R A/P, A A(d) d P is the ratio of the water area to its wetted perimeter. THE HYDRAULIC DEPTH, D A/T, is the ratio of the water area to the top width.
21 Channel Geometry The wetted perimeter does not include the free surface. Examples of R for common geometries shown in Figure at the left.

23 Types of Flow Criterion: Change in flow depth with respect to time and space Steady flow ( y/ t0) OCF Time is a criterion Space is a criterion Unsteady flow ( y/ t 0) Uniform Flow ( y/ x0) Varied Flow ( y/ x 0) Uniform Flow ( y/ x0) Varied Flow ( y/ x 0) GVF RVF GVF RVF
24 Types of Flow Criterion: Change in discharge with respect to time and space OCF Time is a criterion Steady flow ( Q/ t0) Unsteady flow ( Q/ t 0) Space is a criterion Continuous Flow ( Q/ x0) Spatially- Varied Flow ( Q/ x 0) Continuous Flow ( Q/ x0) Spatially-Varied Flow ( Q/ x 0)
25 Classification of Open-Channel Flows Obstructions cause the flow depth to vary. Rapidly varied flow (RVF) occurs over a short distance near the obstacle. Gradually varied flow (GVF) occurs over larger distances and usually connects UF and RVF.

28 Effect of Gravity In open-channel flow the driving force (that is the force causing the motion) is the component of gravity along the channel bottom. Therefore, it is clear that, the effect of gravity is very important in open-channel flow. In an open-channel flow Froude number is defined as: F r Inertia Force Gravity Force, and F r V gd or F r V gd In an open-channel flow, there are three types of flow depending on the value of Froude number: F r > F r F r < Supercritical Flow Critical Flow Subcritical Flow
29 In wave mechanics, the speed of propagation of a small amplitude wave is called the celerity, C. If we disturb water, which is not moving, a disturbance wave occur, and it propagates in all directions with a celerity, C, as: C C C C gy C C For a rectangular channel, the hydraulic depth, Dy. Therefore, Froude number becomes: V V F r gy C
30 Now let us consider propagation of a small amplitude wave in a supercritical open channel flow: F r >, i.e; V > C C C Since V > C, it CANNOT propagate upstream it can propagate only towards downstream with a pattern as follows: V Disturbance will be felt only within this region This means the flow at upstream will not be affected. In other words, there is no hydraulic communication between upstream and downstream flow.
31 Now let us consider propagation of a small amplitude wave in a subcritical open channel flow: F r <, i.e; V < C C C Since V < C, it CAN propagate both upstream and downstream with a pattern as follows: V < C This means the flow at upstream and downstream will both be affected. In other words, there is hydraulic communication between upstream and downstream flow.
32 Now let us consider propagation of a small amplitude wave in a critical open channel flow: F r, i.e; V C C C Since V C, it can propagate only downstream with a pattern as follows: This means the flow at downstream will be affected.
33 State of Flow Effect of gravity: Fr V gd V < gd V gd V > gd D in Froude Number is Hydraulic Depth
34 Velocity Profiles In order to understand the velocity distribution, it is customary to plot the isovels, which are the equal velocity lines at a cross section. isovel
35 Velocity is zero on bottom and sides of channel due to no-slip condition the maximum velocity is usually below the free surface. It is usually three-dimensional flow. However, D flow approximation is usually made with good success for many practical problems.
36 Velocity Distribution The velocity distribution in an open-channel flow is quite nonuniform because of : Nonuniform shear stress along the wetted perimeter, Presence of free surface on which the shear stress is zero.
37 Uniform Flow in Channels Flow in open channels is classified as being uniform or nonuniform, depending upon the depth y. Depth in Uniform Flow is called normal depth y n Uniform depth occurs when the flow depth (and thus the average flow velocity) remains constant Common in long straight runs Average flow velocity is called uniform-flow velocity V 0 Uniform depth is maintained as long as the slope, cross-section, and surface roughness of the channel remain unchanged. During uniform flow, the terminal velocity reached, and the head loss equals the elevation drop

51 Composite Section A channel section, which is composed, of different roughness along the wetted perimeter is called composite section. For such sections an equivalent Manning roughness can be defined as n eq n i P P i i n, P n i, P i Pavlovski' F n F i i s eq. Q A n eq R / 3 S f
52 Compound Channel is the channel for which the cross section is composed of several distinct subsections 3
53 Discharge computation in Compound Channels To compute the discharge, the channel is divided into 3 subsections by using vertical interfaces as shown in the figure: Then the discharge in each subsection is computed separately by using the Manning equation. In computation of wetted perimeter, water-to-water contact surfaces are not included. II n m I III m n n 3 Q i A n i i A P i i / 3 S o i,,3 Q total 3 i Q i
