HYDRAULICS

TUTORIAL

**Chapter 1 : Flow In Open Channel
**

1. Compute the hydraulic radius (R), hydraulic depth (yh ) and section factor (M = A√yh)

for a trapezoidal channel. The depth of flow is 5m, the bottom width is 15m, and the side

slope is 2 (horizontal) : 1 (vertical).

2. A trapezoidal section has a 5m bed width, 2.5m depth and 1:1 side slope.

3. Calculate the geometric elements of a parabolic section with a cross-sectional area of

10.0m2 and a top width of 4m. If the section is replaced by a trapezoidal section with a

4.0m bed width and 3:2 side slope, calculate the depth of flow, top width, hydraulic

radius and section factor.

4. What will be the depth of flow in a trapezoidal channel that has a bottom width of 2.5m

and side slope of 1.1? The channel carries a flow rate of 4m3/s with a velocity of

1.44m/s.

5. A triangular channel with side slope of 1:1 carries a discharge of 4m3/s with a velocity

of 0.74m/s. Evaluate the geometric elements ;area (A), wetted perimeter (P), top width

(T), hydraulic radius (R), hydraulic depth (yh), section factor(M) of the channel.

6. Calculate the geometric elements of a circular cross section with a cross-sectional area

of 0.15m2 and a diameter of 1.0m.

7. A rectangular channel is 4m wide and 2.5m deep. The water in the channel is 1.75m

deep and is flowing at a rate of 21m3/s. Determine the area of flow, wetted perimeter,

and hydraulic radius. Is the flow laminar or turbulent?

(use kinematic viscosity = 1.10 x 10-6 m2/s)

8. A trapezoidal channel has a side slope of 200 to the vertical and has a base width of

150m. If the depth of flow is 6m, determine the hydraulic radius, hydraulic depth and

section factor.

9. Determine the Reynolds number and the Froude number for the flow in Problem 8 if the

discharge rate is 800m3/s. What is the flow regime?

10. The cross sectional profile of a natural river can be approximated as parabolic. The

distance between left and right banks is 100m and the maximum water depth is 8m. If

the average velocity of the river is 0.5m/s, determine the flow rate. Also determine the

flow regime.

Wishing you All The Best and Good Luck!!
