Be able to determine the critical depth for a specified volumetric flow rate through a rectangular channel of specified bottom width.
Be able to determine the critical slope for a specified volumetric flow rate through an open channel of specified shape, size, & Manning roughness coefficient, with known critical depth.
Be able to determine whether a specified volumetric flow rate through an open channel of given shape & size, with known depth of flow will be critical, subcritical or supercritical flow.
Be able to calculate the depth of flow after a hydraulic jump if given the depth before the hydraulic jump, the volumetric flow rate and the shape and dimensions of the open channel.
Be able to identify which type of surface profile (e.g. M1, M2, M3, S1, S2, S3, etc.) is present in a specified gradually varied flow situation.
Be able to carry out a stepwise calculation of the surface profile for a specified, gradually varied, non-uniform open channel flow.
