Open Channel Flow

 Introduction

Open-channel flow, a branch of hydraulics and fluid mechanics, is a type of liquid flow within a conduit with a free surface, known as a channel. The other type of flow within a conduit is pipe flow. These two types of flow are similar in many ways but differ in one important respect: the free surface.

  • Open-channel flow has a free surface, whereas pipe flow does not.
  • Open channel natural or manmade conveyance structure which has a free surface at atmospheric pressure. For example, flow in rivers, streams, flow in sanitary and storm
    sewers flowing partially full.
