Hydraulic Analysis of Water Transmission Flowing Party Full

by Joel L. Caves,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water for Resource Development

Abstract: The hydraulic behavior of a transmission line that flows full along only part of its length is more difficult to analyze than a completely full line. Unsteady open-channel and closed-conduit hydraulics, plus the dynamics of the free-surface, closed-conduit transition front are involved. Air venting of the conduit is also an important and complicating factor. Analysis methods and several design considerations are discussed.
