Felix Kibet Rotich, Julius Shichikha Maremwa and Joseph Kipchirchir KandieAbstract:
This study finds turbulent, non-uniform and Newtonian fluid flows with a parabolic cross-section in the open channel. On parabolic channels, we examine the effects of top width, channel slope and energy coefficient on flow velocity. Because of its stability, convergence and precision, the governing equations are solved by finite difference approximation approach. Using MATLAB software, the result is presented graphically. The findings are that; an increase in the channel slope, top width and energy coefficient has been shown to lead to increased velocity of flow. This study helps in floods control, construction of channels such as canals and crop irrigation.Pages: 76-82 | Views: 71 | Downloads: 11Download Full Article: Click Here
