CURVED OPEN CHANNELS
|Abstract:||Under natural conditions, channels are characterised by curvilinear courses. They are different from the straight courses in so much as there is significant presence of transverse circulation in the flow., The transverse circulation results from the non-uniform distribution of velocity over the cross-section and inclination of free surface of water in the curves. This, in turn,changes the velocity distribution and the composition of energy gradient in the fully developed region in a curve. The transverse circulation also affects the resistance pattern of the flow and the energy expenditure in it. Transverse circulation has been seen to be responsible mainly for the transverse sediment transport in a curved open channel and the resultant bed topography.....|
