Nature of transition profile and transition depth; profile does not vary in position with changes in discharge as do normal and critical depth profiles; mathematically, point of transition is singular point; solution to differential equation for steady flow does not yield traditional vertical water-surface profile at that point; graphical method for constructing transition profiles in practical application.
