Stationary flow solution for water levels in open channels

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

We study stationary flow in open discharge channels. A model is derived from basic principles, which is solved numerically for the water level and discharge as a function of position along the channel. The model describes the effect of external inflow from fields adjacent to the channel. Several scenarios are calculated, both for very slowly, and more rapidly flowing water courses.
