COMPUTATION OF UNIFORM AND NONUNIFORM FLOW IN PRISMATIC CONDUITS

TABLE OF GEOMETRIC AND HYDRAULIC FACTORS ARE PRESENTED FOR CLOSED CONDUIT SHAPES COMMONLY ENCOUNTERED IN WATER CONVEYANCE ENGINEERING, THE TABLES PROVIDE FOR DIFFERENT DEGREES OF RESISTANCE TO FLOW RESULTING FROM DIFFERENT MATERIALS USED IN CONSTRUCTION. THE METHODS PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR GEOMETRICALLY SIMILIAR CONDUITS AS CIRCULAR, OVAL, AND SQUARE PIPES. SOLUTIONS FOR CONDUITS NOT GEOMETRICALLY SIMILIAR, AS RECTANGULAR AND PIPE-ARCH ARE ALSO INCLUDED. THE TABLES AND METHODS PRESENTED FACILITATE THE RAPID COMPLETION OF DESIGN CALCULATIONS BY SLIDE RULE OR MECHANICAL CALCULATORS. IN ADDITION, THE TABLES OF HYDRAULIC FACTORS MAY BE USED FOR SIMPLIFICATION OF COMPUTER OPERATIONS, ESPECIALLY FOR NONUNIFORM FLOW PROBLEMS.
