Theoretical analysis of the effects of disturbances on supercritical flows in an inclined channel based on the method of characteristics is presented. Since the practical application of the method would be severely limited by the amount of manual computations involved, the adaptation of the results for computer treatment has been emphasized. A number of numerical examples concerning a straight flaring transition is presented.
