Uniform Flow

# Uniform Flow | Irrigation Engineering - Civil Engineering (CE) PDF Download

### Introduction

Consider a steady uniform flow of water in a channel whose bed has a slope, i.
Let A be the area of flow section, P the wetted perimeter and v the mean velocity of flow.
Velocity, v = C√mi
Where, C=  a constant depending on the shape and nature of channel.
m = A/P = hydraulic mean depth
C is a dimensioned constant having dimension L1/2T−1.
Value of C can be found out using following empirical formulae:

• Bazin’s formula:

Where, K is a constant depending on the nature of channel surface.
• Kutter’s formula:

Where, N = Kutter’s constant.
• Manning’s formula:
C = (1/N)m(1/6)
Where, N = Roughness coefficient
So, v =
