Channel Types and Flow in Different Shaped Channels

Water Pipe Part Full
There are many different shapes of channel that flow occurs in and it is often necessary to estimate the flow rate in the channel for engineering purposes, such as for designing concrete drainage channels to handle the flow of storm water. Different channel types include:

Types of Channels

Types of Open Channel and Closed Channel

Flow Advisor has a separate calculation screen for each channel type. It makes it easy to estimate the flow rate that will occur in a particular channel type, of a given shape & size, for a specified angle of slope. Open Channel Flow is estimated by Pipe Flow Advisor using the manning formula calculation (the manning equation with the manning coefficient).

Pipe Flow Advisor allows you to select the type of calculation required, water flow rate, water depth, volume of water, weight of water, and then it instantly calculates the channel flow results and clearly display these on the screen.
