EXAMPLE 1. Water is flowing in a weedy excavated earth channel of g y trapezoidal cross section with a bottom width of 0.8 m, trapezoid angle of 60, and a bottom slope angle of 0.3. If the flow depth is measured to be 0.52 m, determine the flow rate of water through the channel. What would your answer be if the bottom angle were 1?

EXAMPLE 2. Water is to be transported in an unfinished-concrete rectangular channel with a bottom width of 1.22 m at a rate of 1.44 m3/s. The terrain is such that the channel bottom drops 2 m per p p 1000 m length. Determine the minimum height of the channel under uniform-flow conditions. What would your answer be if the bottom drop is just 1 m per 1000 m length?

EXAMPLE 3. Water flows in a channel whose bottom slope is 0.003 and whose cross section is shown in the figure. The dimensions and the Manning coefficients for the surfaces of different subsections are also given on the figure. Determine the flow rate through the channel and the effective Manning coefficient for the channel.
