Gradually Varying Flow When I look into a mirror..

¢ So far in open channels we considered uniform flow during which the flow depth z and the flow velocity v remain constant.

¢  In this section we consider gradually varied flow (GVF), which is a form of steady nonuniform flow characterized by gradual variations in flow depth and velocity (small slopes and no abrupt changes) and a free surface that always remains smooth (no discontinuities or zigzags).

Friday, November 9, 2012 Gradually Varied Flow 3

¢ Flows that involve rapid changes in flow depth and velocity, are called rapidly varied flows (RVF).

¢ A change in the bottom slope or cross section of a channel or an obstruction in the path of flow may cause the uniform flow in a channel to become gradually or rapidly varied flow.

¢  In gradually varied flow, the flow depth and velocity vary slowly, and the free surface is stable.

¢ This makes it possible to formulate the variation of flow depth along the channel on the basis of the conservation of mass and energy principles and to obtain relations for the profile of the free surface.

¢  In uniform flow, the slope of the energy line is equal to the slope of the bottom surface. Therefore, the friction slope equals the bottom slope, Sf = S0.

¢  In gradually varied flow, however, these slopes are different.

channel of width b, and assume any variation in the bottom slope and water depth to be rather gradual.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ Write the equations in terms of average

velocity v and assume the pressure distribution to be hydrostatic.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ The total head of the liquid at any cross

section is H = zb + y + v 2/2g, where zb is the vertical distance of the bottom surface from the reference datum.

¢ Differentiating H with respect to x gives

Gradually Varied Flow ¢  In this expression, z is the depth of the

channel bottom from the datum elevation, not the depth of flow in the channel.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ H is the total energy of the liquid and thus

dH/dx is the slope of the energy line (negative quantity), which is equal to the friction slope.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ For continuity, the mass flow rate is the

same at every cross section. ¢ Since this a incompressible fluid, the

volumetric flow rate must also be the same.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢  If we assume a rectangular channel, then

the volumetric flow rate at any cross section will be the depth times the channel width times the velocity.

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ The dy/dx term is the slope of the water

surface profile as you move down the channel.

dy dx

• 14

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ This relation is derived for a rectangular

channel, but it is also valid for channels of other constant cross sections provided that the Froude number is expressed accordingly.

Friday, November 9, 2012 Gradually Varied Flow 27

S0 −Sf 1− Fr 2( ) =

dy dx

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ An analytical or numerical solution of this

differential equation gives the flow depth y as a function of x for a given set of parameters, and the function y(x) is the surface profile.

• 15

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ The general trend of flow depth—whether it

increases, decreases, or remains constant along the channel—depends on the sign of dy/dx, which depends on the signs of the numerator and the denominator.

Friday, November 9, 2012 Gradually Varied Flow 29

S0 −Sf 1− Fr 2( ) =

dy dx

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ The Froude number is always positive and

so is the friction slope Sf .

Gradually Varied Flow ¢ The bottom slope S0 is positive for down-

ward-sloping sections, zero for horizontal sections, and negative for upward-sloping sections of a channe
