A New Approach of Sediment Transport in the Design and by Herman Depeweg

By Herman Depeweg

The shipping of sediment enormously impacts the sustainability of an irrigation process. Erosion and deposition not just elevate upkeep charges, yet can result in an inequitable and insufficient distribution of irrigation water. figuring out the behaviour and delivery of sediment permits effective making plans and trustworthy water supply schedules, and guarantees the managed deposition of sediments, making upkeep actions extra possible. those lecture notes current a close research of sediment shipping in irrigation canals, including actual and mathematical descriptions of the behaviour. A mathematical version predicts the sediment shipping, deposition and entrainment fee for varied move stipulations and sediment inputs. The version is very compatible for the simulation of sediment delivery in irrigation canals the place circulation and sediment shipping are mostly made up our minds by means of the operation of stream keep watch over buildings.

The momentum passing that area per unit of time is the product of the mass and the velocity: ρva2 A. The momentum for the whole cross section with 2 A. The total momentum for the whole cross section can area A is: ρvA also be expressed by the average velocity v¯ as: βρ¯v2 A. 6 UNIFORM FLOW Uniform flow in open channels is characterized by: a. the depth, cross section, velocity and discharge are constant in every section; b. the lines that represent the energy, water surface and channel bottom are parallel; the slopes are So = Sf = Sw .

V ∂y c2 ∂v ∂y αvy ∂Bs + + + D =0 ∂x g ∂x ∂t A ∂x For a rectangular channel the surface width Bs and bottom width B are equal and therefore dBs /dx = 0 and the hydraulic depth becomes D = A/Bs = y. 51) Continuity equation for a rectangular channel By writing first the sum and then the difference of the two above given equations, two new equations will be obtained. First, the addition will be presented. Open Channel Flow 41 1. 52) 2. 53) g (So − Sf ) is called the energy term. 54) General equation of non-steady flow in a rectangular channel Remember that the general mathematical expression for a change of a function f in the x-t-diagram when going from a given point 1 to a neighbouring point 2 can be given by the partial derivatives of the function in the t-direction and the x-direction.

The undisturbed flow is also uniform; this property helps to define the simple wave problem. The acceleration terms in the dynamic equation are large compared with Sf and So . The total derivates of (v ± 2c) in the equations are zero; this means that the quantities (v ± 2c) appear to remain constant to two observers moving with a velocity (v ± c). (v ± c) ∂(v ± 2c) ∂(v ± 2c) + =0 ∂x ∂t The paths of these observers can be traced on the x−t plane, which gives rise to two families of lines, the characteristics.
