The problem of seepage losses from a system of parallel triangular channels is solved exactly by use of conformal mapping. Formulas for the discharge and the shape of the free surface are given. In general, the system is underlain by a drainage layer at a finite depth, and the case of an infinitely deep aquifer is solved separately. Numerical examples are given with the results presented in the form of graphs and tables.
