Abstract: Developing flow in open channels may be analyzed using the Bernoulli and continuity equations, and by taking boundary layer growth into account. However, the most general and useful analysis does not seem to appear in the literature. Absence of a general analysis has led some investigators to apply boundary layer calculations in greater detail than is supported by physical reality, and to make unwarranted assumptions in transferring data from physical model to prototype.
