BASIC HYDRAULIC PRINCIPLES OF OPEN-CHANNEL FLOW
1. Purpose and objectives
Basic Hydraulic Principles of Open-Channel Flow is a text designed to present the principles of open-channel flow which are of most concern to
surface water hydrologists involved in the collection of water resources
information. It is designed for use by those who have little or no background in the principles of basic hydraulics and fluid mechanics, and
hydrologists who need a review of these basic concepts. Students should
have a working knowledge of algebra and some background in basic physics.
The text (Jobson & Froehlich, 1988) is designed so that it can be covered by a one week course which combines lectures and class problems in the study of basic open-channel flow. Specifically, subject matter includes
forces on submerged objects, similitude, velocity profiles, resistance, the
The text and course are designed to be self contained and no other references or information is required.
Each lesson contains a set of problems to be worked by the student
based on the information in the lessons presented up to that time. Answers
to the problems are contained in the back of the text.
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
The course can be self taught or presented by an instructor with the
aid of a black board.
6. Form of presentation
All material is presented in English. The text for the course is USGS Open-File Report 88-707.
7. Operational experience
The class has been presented at least twice a year to Geological
Survey employees and others for more than 10 years.
8. Originator and technical support
U.S. Geological Survey, Office of Surface Water.
10. Conditions on use
Basic Hydraulic Principles of Open-Channel Flow, by Harvey E. Jobson and David C. Froehlich U.S. Geological Survey Open-File Report 88-707 Reston, Virginia 22092 1988, 150 pages
