CHAPTER 15

COMPUTATION OF WATER SURFACE PROFILES
15.1. A wide rectangular river with a bed slope of 14 × 10-4 carries a discharge of 3.6
m3/s/m`. A dam is built across the river at which the afflux is found to be 1.0 m. Using
the numerical integration method, estimate the water depth at a distance of 500 m
upstream of the dam. Take Manning roughness coefficient, n, as 0.025.

The depth of water at a distance of 500 m upstream of the dam is 2.174 m. As it can be
seen, this method involves iteration procedure. The use of a computer code is therefore
recommended.
15.2. A wide channel, having a bed slope of 0.01, carries a specific discharge of 5.0 m2/s.
A gate is located in the midway of the channel where the depth of water at the venacontracted section is 0.4 m. Draw the water surface profile and estimate the length of the
rising curve formed after the gate using the numerical integration method. Take n =
0.025.

Therefore, the channel has a steep bed slope. The water surface profile is shown in the
Figure below. S3 profile will be formed after the gate. It is now required to calculate the
length of S3 curve between y = 0.4 m and y = 1.14 m. Let yi = 0.4 m and take dl1 = 50 m.
