Development of roll waves in open channels


Field Value
Title Development of roll waves in open channels
Creator Brock, Richard R.
Description This study is concerned with some of the properties of roll waves that develop naturally from a turbulent uniform flow in a wide rectangular channel on a constant steep slope. The wave properties considered were depth at the wave crest, depth at the wave trough, wave period, and wave velocity. The primary focus was on the mean values and standard deviations of the crest depths and wave periods at a given station and how these quantities varied with distance along the channel. The wave...
