Propagation of wave-fronts in wide channels of arbitrary cross-section
B.Sc., Ph.D., Lecturer in Applied Mathematics, University of Leeds.
This paper applies to channel hydraulics a recent paper on partial differential equation theory. Equations are presented in a general form for any shape of channel, and although the derivation of these equations is very complicated, and is therefore omitted, their application is relatively simple. They are applied here to a channel of triangular cross-section and show that initially the disturbance moves away to the sides of the channel.
