Abstract

The channel junctions are an integral part of any channel network used in practice. There are several examples of such flows in channels such as water conveyance systems in hydropower plants, canals, natural and manmade waterways, sewers and drains etc. The water levels in different channels before and after a junction need to be monitored effectively to avoid problems such as over flow and skewed flow distribution. This paper analytically investigates the complex flow features of combining and dividing flows at rectangular and trapezoidal channel junctions. Furthermore parametric investigations have also been carried out to establish dependence of depth ratio on various parameters for rectangular and trapezoidal channel sections.
