    Research output: Contribution to journalConference and proceedingspeer-review


    In this work, the results of designing open channels in rectangular and trapezoidal form are presented. For the development of the same important aspects were taken as determination of flows by means of formula of the rational method, area of the surface for its implementation, optimal form of the flow to meet the needs of that environment. In the design the parameter of the hydraulic radius expressed in terms of the hydraulic area and wet perimeter was determined, considering that the surface on which the fluid flows is the product of the perimeter of the section and the length of the channel and where shear is generated by the condition of no slippage.
