Abstract:

The paper presents an analytical solution for the design of a rapid flow channel junction utilizing a spillway type inlet to minimize flow disturbance in the main channel. The dynamic equation of flow for a channel with lateral outflow is used in conjunction with Mannings equation to design an inlet of decreasing width whereby the lateral flow into the main channel is uniformly spread over a predetermined length of spillway. The necessary computation technique is developed and a sample computation included. Author
