In open channel hydraulics, the notion of critical flow conditions and critical depth are not restricted to open channel flows with hydrostatic pressure distributions. This contribution shows an extension of the concept of critical flow conditions linked with the minimum specific energy, as introduced by Bakhmeteff [1] and extended by Liggett [9] and… CONTINUE READING
