Block ramps represent a steep sloped short section of a channel provided with large roughness and used as grade stabilization structures. Experimental study on block ramp with macro roughness has been carried out in this paper for studying the water surface profile over the ramp and also for quantification of energy loss. Measured water surface profiles over ramps of various slopes reveal that steeper slope is reigned mainly by non-uniform flow, however, uniform flow occurs on major part of the… CONTINUE READING
