Course Description

This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 1/25/2019)
162-Introduction to Compound Channel Flow Analysis for Floodplains

Cross-sections of natural and restored waterways are generally composite compound channels as opposed to single geometric shapes with one constant roughness. This course covers eight composite compound channel analysis methods. Differences between the methods and typical applications of each method are discussed. The course also provides example calculations for each method. A few common hydraulic software programs are briefly introduced and the concepts and analysis methods they utilize are discussed.

This course was very informative. I had never been exposed to so many different way to calculate flows from various channel cross sections. The only problem I struggled with was number 19 when dealing with a negative number for the various natural logs. I finally figured it out. May want to add some discussion on dealing with the natural log of numbers less than 1.

Very good refresher course for those who work with open channel hydraulics, specifically compound sections and stream and river engineering.
