FLOW IN DITCHES AND OPEN CHANNELS
1010810FLOW IN DITCHES AND OPEN CHANNELSThis chapter discusses the design requirements and flow measurement techniques for water in open channels and ditches. Open channel flow is the flow of liquids where there is only one liquid surface free of solid boundaries. A channel is a hard surface similar to pavement that is in contact with water. It is often referred to as a conduit. A ditch has a soft earthen configuration that contacts the water.Ditch conditions are discussed because an engineer might be called upon to design a ditch containing stormwater flowing from a site to a point of disposal. Discussion is limited to only stormwater because sanitary drainage would not be permitted to flow in…
