OPEN CHANNEL FLOW
(Uniform Flow)
Types of Channels
? Open channel flow is a flow which has a free surface and
flows due to gravity.
? Pipes not flowing full also fall into the category of open
channel flow
? In open channels, the flow is driven by the slope of the
channel rather than the pressure

Types of Flows
1. Steady and Unsteady Flow

3. Laminar and Turbulent Flow
4. Sub-critical, Critical and Super-critical Flow

1. Steady and Unsteady Flow
? Steady flow happens if the conditions (flow rate,
velocity, depth etc) do not change with time.
? The flow is unsteady if the depth is changes with
time
