measured by the degree to which the water- surface profile and the energy gradient are parallel to the streambed. The energy equation for this reach is: where. h = elevation of the water surface at the respective sections above a common datum, h, = velocity head at the respective section = cuTn/2g,File Size: 1MB. ย  The water surface profiles flow measurement was then related to various dimensionless parameters such as converging angle, width ratio and relative distance to develop the model. The results of calculations of water surface profile from the present model show good agreement with the observed data and data of other by: 3. COMPUTATION OF WATER-SURFACE PROFILES IN OPEN CHANNELS. 27 will have the value selected for that key depth. At all flows for which the mean depth corres- ponding to the water-surface elevation is equal to or greater than the higher key mean depth, the . Water-Surface Profile Equation The numerical solution to water-surface profile equation can be written as follows where L is the distance between the upstream (section 1) and downstream (section 2) sections and ๐‘†ฬ…๐‘“ is the average slope of the energy grade line. The different methods of calculating the average energy slope are as follows: Size: KB.

Computation of water surface profile along the side weir is essential to determine the discharge over the side weir. Estimation of discharge over the side weirs is still an important issue. Most.

Computer Program for Water Surface Profiles Chapter 31 WSP2 may be used to compute water surface profiles for encroached valley and road cross sections. The user must input encroachment stations for each cross section where encroachment is desired. WSP2 is capable of computing flow profiles for sub-critical and critical flow. In natural channels and flood. The water surface profile within a culvert can be classified two different ways: 1. Hydraulic Slope, which is based on the slope of the culvert bottom and 2. Hydraulic Curve, which is based on the relationship of the water depth relative to critical depth and normal depth.. FishXing uses these classifications to determine the appropriate inlet and outlet boundary conditions.
