Gradually-varied Flow

Gradually-varied flow (GVF): A steady non-uniform flow in a prismatic


channel with gradual changes in its water-surface elevation.
Examples of GVF:
(a) Drawdown produced
by sudden drop in the
channel
(b) Backwater produced by
increased in bed elevation
Two basic assumptions are involved in the analysis of GVF:
1. The pressure distribution at any section is hydrostatic.
2. The resistance to flow at any depth can be assumed using uniform-
flow equation, such as the Manning's equation, with the condition that
the slope term to be used in the equation is the energy slope and not
the bed slope. Thus, if in a GVF the depth of flow at any section is y,
the energy slope S
f
is:

where R is the hydraulic radius of the section at depth y.

Since the water surface varies in the longitudinal x-direction, the depth of the
flow and the total energy are functions of x.

Classification of Flow Profiles
In a given channel, y
o
and y
c
are two fixed depths if Q, n and S
o
are fixed.
Also, there are three possible relations between y
o
and y
c
as:
(i) y
o
> y
c
(ii) y
o
< y
c
(iii) y
o
= y
c
Further, there are two cases where y
o
does not exist, i.e. when
(a) the channel bed is horizontal
(b) when the channel has an adverse slope So is -ve.
Based on the above, the channels are classified into five categories as indicated in
Table 4.1
Table 4.1. Types of GVF profiles
Figure 4.3. Various GVF profiles
All curves in region 1 have positive slopes - backwater curves
All curves in region 2 have negative slopes - drawdown curves
Example 4.1
A rectangular channel with a bottom width of 4 m and bottom slope of 0.0008 has a
discharge of 1.5 m
3
/s. In a gradually-varied flow in this channel, the depth at a certain
location is found to be 0.30 m. Assuming n = 0.016, determine the type of GVF profile.

The channel is a mild
slope channel

The profile is of the M
2

type

Examples of Occurrence of Type M Flow Profiles
M
1
profile is a subcritical-flow condition.
Obstructions to flow such as weirs, dams,
control structures and natural features such as
bends, produce M
1
backwater curves. These
extends to several kilometres upstream before
merging with the normal depth.
M
2
profiles occur at a sudden drop in the bed
of the channel, at constriction type of
transitions and at the canal outlet of pools.
M
3
profiles occur when there is a supercritical
flow enters a mild-slope channel. Examples
are the flow leading from a spillway or a sluice
gate to a mild slope. M
3
normally followed by a
small stretch of rapidly-varied flow and the
downstream is generally terminated by a
hydraulic jump. Compared to M
1
and M
2

profiles, M
3
profiles are relatively short length.
Examples of Occurrence of Type S Flow Profiles
S
1
profile is produced when the flow from a
steep channel is terminated by a deep pool
created by an obstruction, such as a weir or
dam. At the beginning of the curve, the flow
changes from the normal depth (supercritical
flow) to subcritical flow through a hydraulic
jump. The profiles extend downstream with a
positive water-surface slope to reach a
horizontal asymptote at the pool elevation.
S
2
profiles occur at the entrance region of a
steep channel leading from a reservoir and at
a break of grade from mild slope to steep
slope. Generally S
2
profile are of short length.
S
3
profile is produced when the flow exited
from a sluice gate with a steep slope on its
downstream.
S
3
curve is also produced when a flow exists
from a steeper slope to a less steep slope.
Examples of Occurrence of Type C Flow Profiles
Examples of Occurrence of Type H Flow Profiles
C
1
and C
3
profiles are very rare and are highly unstable.
A horizontal channel can be
considered as the lower limit
reached by a mild slope as its bed
slope becomes flatter. It is obvious
that there is no region 1 for a
horizontal channel as y
o
= . The
H
2
and H
3
profiles are similar to M
2

and M
3
profiles respectively.
However, the H
2
curve has a
horizontal asymptote.
Adverse slopes are rather rare and
A
2
and A
3
curves are similar to H
2

and H
3
curves respectively. These
profiles are of very short length.
Example 4.2
A triangular channel has side slope 1 horizontal : 1 vertical and bed slope is 0.001.
Estimate and categorize this channel whether mild, steep or critical when the flow rate is
given as much as 0.2 m
3
/s through this channel. Assume that Mannings roughness
coefficient n = 0.015. Give various of depths that categorize the flow profile in type 1, 2
and 3.

Control section
A control section is defined as a section in which a fixed relationship exists between the
discharge and depth of flow. Weirs, spillways, sluice gates are some typical examples of
structures which give rise to control sections. The critical depth is also a control point. Any
GVF profile will have at least one control section.
Profile of gradually varied flow can be determined using dynamic equation of
gradually varied flow.

Equations below are differential equations for gradually varied flow and they
represent depth of water y at a certain distance x.






Calculations are carried out to:
i. determine the length L if the depth y
1
and y
2
known.
ii. determine either one of water depth (y
1
or y
2
), if the length of L and either
one of depth are known.
