FLOOD ROUTING IN A CIRCULAR SECTION (OF SUBCRITICAL SLOPES BY MUSKINGUM METHOD)

IT IS SHOWN THAT THE STORAGE EQUATION OF FLOOD ROUTING BY THE MUSKINGUM METHOD DOES NOT APPLY FOR FLOOD ROUTING THROUGH A CIRCULAR CROSS-SECTION. THE CHANNEL OF THIS STUDY CONSISTS OF A SINGLE CONTINUOUS CIRCULAR CONDUIT OF THREE FEET IN DIAMETER AND 820 FEET LONG WITH FREE-FALL END. IN THIS STUDY THE STORAGE EQUATION MAKES USE OF THE ENERGY SLOPE TO OBTAIN A SOLUTION OF FLOOD ROUTING THROUGH A CIRCULAR CROSS-SECTION. PLOTS ARE PRESENTED WHICH SHOW THE EFFECTS OF HYDRAULIC PARAMETERS AND STORAGE COEFFICIENT. PLOTS ARE ALSO SHOWN COMPARING THIS STORAGE METHOD WITH THE METHOD OF CHARACTERISTICS AND THE OBSERVED FLOOD WAVES. /AUTHOR/
