# Type S - profile

## The S1, profile is produced when the flow from a steep

channel is terminated by a deep pool created by an
obstruction (weir or dam). At the beginning the flow
changes from (super critical) flow to sub-critical flow thro
a hydraulic jump.)

## S2 type profile occurs at the

entrance region of a steep channel
leading from a reservoir and a
brake of grade from mild slope to
steep slope.
S3 type profile occurs when the
steeper slope changes to relatively
a flatter slope (Mild, Horizontal)

S2 and S3 Profile

S3

## Critical, Horizontal and Adverse slope

Type C profiles: yn =yc zone-2
is absent. C1 and C3 profiles
are very rare and highly
unstable
Type H profile:
There is no region 1 for
horizontal channel as yn
The H2 and H3 profiles are
similar to M2 and M3 profiles.
However H2 curve has a
horizontal asymptote.
Type A - profile:
There is no region

for

and A2 and A3 curved are
similar to H2 and H3 curves.

bottom of the channel S0 and Sf represent bed slope and friction slope

## It is clear from Mannings (or) Chezys formula for a given Q

Sf > S0 if y < yn
Sf < S0 if y > yn
By using these inequalities, we can determine sign of numerator
of above equation. Similarly Fr > 1 (super critical) or Fr < 1
(sub-critical) we can determine the sign of denominator.

## Backwater Curve: For a backwater curve, dy/dx is

positive. For this condition, the above equation

in other words surface profile approaches NDL asymptotically

## Fr 1 denominator tends to 0 ; dy/dx

Which means water surface profile approach the critical depth line
vertically. (physically impossible, water surface has a sharp curvature,
hydrostatic pressure is not possible) hydraulic jump will occur.

tends to 0 in Eq.(1)

## Surface water Profiles

Simple situations of a series combination of two channel
sections with differing bed slopes are considered.
To anslyse a general problem of any channel sections
and controls, the following steps are to be adopted:
Draw the longitudinal section of the systems.
Calculate the critical depth and normal depth to draw CDL & NDL
Make all the controls- both the imposed as well as natural
controls.
Identify the possible profiles.

## Water surface Profiles based on Break in Grade (slope)

(Note: Change in NDL only)

## Definition: A Control section is defined as a section in which a fixed

relationship exists between the discharge (Q) and depth (y) of flow.

## Weirs, spillways, sluice gates are some typical examples of structures

which give rise to control sections.

The flow profile through above examples form water profiles which
changes from sub-critical to supercritical flow. In the reverse case of
transition from supercritical flow to sub-critical flow

control point.

## Super Critical flow

Super Critical flow

sub-critical (Fr <1) flows have controls in the downstream end while
supercritical (Fr>1) flows have control sections at the upstream end of
the channel section
