Objective
To acquaint and equip with hydraulics of flow in open channel

Theory

UNIT I
Open channel flow and its classification: open channels and their properties; energy and momentum principles; critical flow-its computation and analysis; uniform flow and its computation.

UNIT II
Concepts of boundary layer; surface. roughness; velocity distribution and instability to uniform flow.

UNIT III
Theory, analysis and methods of computations of gradually varied flow.

UNIT IV
Hydraulic jump; gradually varied and rapidly varied unsteady flow.

UNIT V
Hydraulic structures for on-farm application and use in energy dissipation and special applications.

Practicals
Extensive practices on different aspects covered in the theory.
