Open Channel Flow by Mohan Das Madan

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The book starts with the concept of open channel flow, types of forces acting on the flow, types of channel flow, velocity distribution and coefficients, and basic continuity in 1d and 3d. Then it moves on to steady gradually varied flow, its differential equation, hydraulics of alluvialchannel, design of channel and hydraulic jump. Finally, the text concludes with saint-venant equations and its solutions by few numerical methods in flood routing and dam-break situations.
