Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: This paper presents an analytical solution for the design of a rapid flow channel junction utilizing a spillway type inlet to minimize flow disturbance in the main channel. The dynamic equation of flow for a channel with later al outflow is used in conjunction with Manning's equation to design an inlet of decreasing width whereby the lateral flow into the main channel is uniformly spread over a predetermined length of spillway. The necessary computation technique is developed and a sample computation included.
