Introduction of Variational Principle Into Open Channel Hydrodynamics

by Chao-Lin Chiu, Univ of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, United States,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering

Abstract:

Possible applications of the variational principle maximizing the entropy are illustrated. Open channel flow properties are expressed in terms of 'entropy parameter', and, hence, linked to the entropy.
