Title: Design of Minimum Earthwork Cost Canal Sections Created Date: 10/19/2001 10:50:06 AM The hydraulic radius is maximum for given area if wetted perimeter is minimum. It is evident from the continuity equation and uniform flow formulae that for a given value of slope and surface roughness, the velocity of flow is maximum when hydraulic radius is maximum. Open channel design involves determining cross-section dimensions of the channel for the amount of water the channel must carry (i.e., capacity) at a given flow velocity, slope and, shape or alternatively determining the discharge capacity for the given cross-section dimensions. A channel section is considered as the most economical or most efficient when it passes a maximum discharge for given cross section area, resistance coefficient, and bottom slope. The total energy at the channel section is given by, H = total energy, z = elevation head above datum, y = depth of water in channel, V = velocity of flow, g = acceleration due to gravity. E. BIBLIOGRAPHY 6-14. A triangular channel section is the most economical when each of its sloping side makes an angle of 45o with vertical or is half square described on a diagonal and having equal sloping sides. Tabular and graphical methods also available for solution are subject to errors of double interpolation and errors of judgment in reading the graphs. As such, improving the design of irrigation canals will reduce water losses through evaporation and seepage. It is hoped that these equations will be useful to the engineer engaged in the design of lined canals. It was found that rising of aqueduct structure shall boost farming in this area besides improving livelihood of respective land owners. The maximum allowable velocities for lined canals and unlined ditches listed in Table 12.1 can be used when local information is not available. rectangular section with circular bottom for small discharges [B]. However the construction of semicircle cross section is difficult for earthen unlined channel. These relations are used to uncover robust rules that can determine optimal canal designs for elementary problems, directly from flow information such as capacity, velocity, slope, and roughness. The terminologies used in the design of open channels of different geometry are given below: i) Area of Cross Section (a): Area of cross section of for a rectangular cross section, of wetted section. It deals with all the practical aspects of an economic section for various discharges, topographic and soil conditions. In general, the cost of earthwork varies with canal depth. Application of the proposeddesign equations along with the tabulated section shape coefficients results directly into the optimal dimensions andcorresponding cost of a least earthwork cost canal sectionwithout going through the conventional trial and error method of canal design. A trapezoidal section is the most economical if half the top width is equal to one of the sloping sides of the channel or the hydraulic radius is equal to half the depth of flow. The optimizing the configuration of lateral cross section of open channels depends on the targeted variable/s in concern. are exposed. Furthermore, the methods are based on Manning's equation, which is valid for a hydraulically rough boundary having a narrow range of relative roughness and involves a roughness coefficient having awkward dimensions. Rectangular 2. Journal of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering, THE DESIGN OF A PROGRAM FOR OPEN CHANNEL OPTIMIZATION M.Sc. Canal sections: (a) triangular section, (b) rectangular section, (c) trapezoidal section, (d) circular section. S = bed slope . The hydraulic radius, iv) Hydraulic Slope (S): It is the ratio of vertical drop in longitudinal channel section (h) to the channel length (l). Module 1:Water Resources Utilization& Irrigati... Module 3: Irrigation Water Conveyance Systems, LESSON 13. A channel section is said to be economical when the cost of construction of the channel is minimum. The proposed methodology incorporates elements of the water section and the above-water section, and is applicable to both lined and unlined canals. To facilitate the use of the developed model, optimal design graphs are presented. The traditional methods of channel geometry optimization are reformulated to include freeboard considerations. It has been found that the most suitable cross-section of a lined canal is a circular section … trapezoidal section with rounded corners for higher discharges [D]. where earth has to be cut or excavated, equals the two embankments i.e. Bed width v/s depth ratio as given below should be followed for economical section design. This program enables for total priority of only one of these three targets, and also, enables for the selection of different ratios of priority for each of these three targets depending on the local conditions of the project. The specific energy is the total energy at any cross section with respect to channel bed. Also, the optimization considers priorities regarding three targets, which are the wetted perimeter, the cross-sectional area, and the exposed surface. Velocity is computed by Manning’s formula or Chezy formula. (i) Channel Shape: Among the various shapes of open channel the semi-circle shape is the best hydraulic efficient cross sectional shape. The graphs or analytical technique are also effective in designing any trapezoidal channels. A graphical solution is provided to simplify the resulting equations. Application of the proposeddesign equations along with the tabulated sectionshape coefficients results directly in the optimaldimensions of a lined canal without going through theconventional trial and error method of canal design.The optimal cost equation along with the correspondingsection shape coefficients is useful during theplanning of a canal project. Open-Channel Hydraulics. The most economical section of a lined canal is [A]. Open-Channel Flow, John Wiley and Sons, Inc., New York. Procedure:-1. This kind of complicated optimization approach could be achieved only through a computer program where a huge numbers of input attempts are performed without exceeding the specified variable ranges, and thus, the optimum solution can be selected. The cost of construction of a channel depends on depth of excavation and construction for lining. It concerns flow of water in channels where the water does not include air or sediment in large quantities. ), giving operating water surface elevations or operating hydraulic gradients, rates of flow, flood data, etc., where appropriate. Only those alternatives satisfying a group of preset functional, hydraulic, operational, maintenance, and construction constraints are considered feasible, and are screened to find the least cost. sessment, water policy and governance, capacity building, etc. James, Larry G. (1988). (d) Source of water (canal, reservoir, pipeline, wells, or combination of surface and ground water, etc. I. A trapezoidal section is the most economical if half the top width is equal to one of the sloping sides of the channel or the hydraulic radius is equal to half the depth of flow. Canal discharge is the most important parameter in designing a canal. Considering slope of the channel bed is very small, the specific energy E is, For the channel of rectangular section having width b, the cross sectional area of channel, Differentiating equation (12.8), equating it to zero for minimum condition, this becomes, When V Vc, Y = (Critical depth). v) Freeboard: It is the vertical distance between the highest water level anticipated in channel flow and the top of the retaining banks. A direct algebraic technique is developed to determine open channel cross-sectional designs which minimize lining material costs when base and side wall unit costs are different. Moreover, in order to make the optimization practical and applicable, tolerable ranges to each variable can be specified in advance according to the local project conditions; also, the priority ratio for each of the three target variables can be defined in a percentage value. Canal section may also change at flumes, siphons, and aqueducts. The objective is to determine the flow velocity, depth and flow rate, given any one of them. In this investigation, explicit equations and section shape coefficients for the, Though the minimum area section is generally adopted for canals,it is not the least earthwork cost section as it does not involve the cost of earthwork which varies with the excavationdepth. Schwab, G. O., Fangmeier, D. D., Elliot, W. J., and Frevert, R. K. (1993). Design of irrigation canal using Kennedy’s theory:- ... By making use of the following three equations a canal section can be designed by trials. ... Increasing p fivefold, the minimization was carried through various cycles until the optimum stabilized. The basic relations among the cross-section shapes and design variables (the wetted perimeter, the water depth, the water surface width, the cross-sectional area, the lining volume, the excavation volume, etc.) Design a most economical trapezoidal section of a canal having the following data: Discharge of the canal = 20 cumec Permissible mean velocity = 0.85 m/sec. Trapezoidal 3. This condition is utilized for determining the dimensions of economical sections of different forms of channels. Reported herein are explicit equations for normal depth in various irrigationcanal sections. For most economical section, the hydraulic radius (R) should be maximum. The canal water passes through a trough which is generally an R.C.C or steel. surface and ground water management, environmental flows, climate change, geo-spatial as, Optimizition costs of irrigation systems design, Though the minimum area section is generally adopted for lined canals, it is not the best section as it does not involve lining cost, and the cost of earthwork which varies with the excavation depth. 2. To keep the cost down or minimum, the wetted perimeter, for a given discharge, should be minimum. The bottom width of rectangular is 2.4 m. Since specific energy at critical depth (EC) = yc Therefore EC = 1.290 m. Example 12.3: Determine the critical depth for specific energy head of 2.0 m in a trapezoidal channel of 2.0 m bottom width and side slopes of 1:1. Bazin’s constant, K = 1.30 Side slope = 1.5:1 Find also the allowable bed slope of the canal Problem – 2 Find the bed width and bed slope of a canal having the following data: The minimum area, or the maximum velocity cross section, is generally adopted for lined irrigation canals. Normal depth is an important parameter occurring in the design of irrigation canals. Hence the wetted perimeter, for a given discharge should be minimum to keep the cost down or minimum. It is greater than 1 for super critical flow and less than 1 for sub critical flow. But the cost of construction of a channel depends on excavation and the lining. The most economical section of a trapezoidal channel is one which has hydraulic mean depth equal to half the depth of flow. In this work, three targets are simultaneously selected. Nowadays, the scarcity of freshwater sources, climate change and the deterioration of freshwater quality have a great impact on the lives of human being. Road drainage design has as its basic objective the reduction and/or elimination of energy generated by flowing water. design of Irrigation Channels, with regime velocity and channel parameters for various flows. For a given discharge, slope and roughness, the designer … This is provided between 15.25% of normal depth of flow. For achieving economy the depth of cutting is adjusted to achieve above mentioned condition, the canal section is said to be most economical section. The velocity of flow in any channel section is not uniformly distributed. I want to design a water conveyance system (open channel). From the equation of continuity it is evident that for area of cross section being constant, discharge is maximum when the velocity of discharge is maximum. The non- uniform distribution of velocity is due to the presence of a free surface and the frictional resistance along the channel surface. The FSO yielded not only the minimum cost canals but also hydraulically efficient designs with 1.32, 4.86, 4.42, 4.28, and 4.40% less costs than those obtained by PSO for five different freeboard scenarios, respectively. (2001). The results are shown to revert to traditional solutions when the freeboard parameter is set to zero. When estimating the reduction in losses from a lining, this should be based on the combination of a reduced cross-section and a reduced seepage rate per unit area (Thandaveswara, 2012). Design of Canals / The book presents firsthand material from the authors on design of hydraulic canals. All rights reserved. (R.I.H.). Book Condition: New. The chapter presents how to determine design discharge for irrigation canals and power canals. Design of a minimum cost canal section involves minimization of the sum of earthwork cost and cost of lining subject to uniform flow condition in the canal, which results in nonlinear objective function and nonlinear equality constraint making the problem hard to solve analytically. design variables of minimum cost lined canal sections for triangular, rectangular, trapezoidal, and circular shapes have been obtained by applying the nonlinear optimization technique. The optimal cost equation along wi, were obtained for various types of linings and the soil strata. (2001). For a rectangular cross section, if b = width of channel and y = depth of water, the area of wetted section of channel (a) = b.y. The geometric properties of the best hydraulic round-bottom triangular section arc of great interest. For various practical sections there exist equations between the design variables. The section to be adopted should be economical and at the same time it should be functionally efficient. In the present investigation, explicit equations for the design variables of various irrigation canal sections have been obtained. The man velocity of flow in a channel section can be computed from the vertical velocity distribution curve obtained by actual measurements. Applying the general method of design … It emphasizes numerical methods for solving problems and takes a one dimensional approach. Though the minimum area section isgenerally adopted for lined canals, it is not the bestsection as it does not involve lining cost, and thecost of earthwork which varies with the excavationdepth. For problems involving complex limits and economics, the relations are combined with optimization methods to solve for the economically optimal cross sections. Though the minimum area section is generally adopted for lined canals, it is not the minimum cost section as it does not involve lining cost and the cost of earthwork. Methods from calculus may be used to determine a channel cross section which minimizes hydraulic resistance or alternatively, determines the least cost channel dimensions. Bibliography. triangular section with circular bottom for small discharges [C]. The total cost included the cost of earthwork, lining and trimming (if any), control structures, land acquisition, operation, and maintenance. left bank and right It covers optimization of design based on usage requirements and economic constraints. The best hydraulic channel section is determined by using Lagrange's method of undetermined multipliers. It is observed that the velocity at 0.6 depth from the free water surface or average of the velocities measured at 0.2 depth and 0.8 depth from free water surface which is very close to the mean velocity of flow in the vertical section. The work in this thesis involves the development of a program by Visual Basic 6.0 for the optimization of the design of lined open channel lateral cross-section. 1.4 It may also be mentioned here that selection of the most economical section of a channel requires that the section below ground level i.e. These optimal design equations and coefficients have been obtained by analyzing a very large number of optimal sections resulted from the application of optimization procedure in the wide application ranges of input variables. Most economical section is also called the best section or hydraulic efficient section as the discharge passing through a most economical section of channel for a given cross-sectional area (A), slope of the bed (S, A triangular channel section is the most economical when each of its sloping side makes an angle of 45, R= Hydraulic radius (m), P = wetted perimeter (m), = bed slope (fraction or m/m), K = constant for given cross sectional area and bed slope and = A, A = cross-sectional area of canal perpendicular to flow (m, Example 12.2: Compute the critical depth and specific energy for discharge of 6.0 m, Since specific energy at critical depth (E. Jain C. Subhash. The approach presented is more general than the conventional methods given in the textbooks. This is provided to prevent over topping of channel embankments or damage due to trampling. It adopts a river basin approach to promote inter-sectoral co-ordination for holistic planning and management of the Ganges water resources. A triangular channel section is the most economical when each of its sloping side makes an angle of 45 o with vertical or is half square described on a diagonal and having equal sloping sides.

Example 12.2: Compute the critical depth and specific energy for discharge of 6.0 m3s-1 channel from a rectangular channel. The method is applied to the standard sections as well as the round-bottom triangular section. b) It has minimum wetted perimeter c) It involves lesser excavation for the designed amount of discharge. Every reach of the canal is described by four basic design variables bed slope, bed width, upstream bed level, and upstream berm level. To carry a certain discharge number of channel sections may be designed with different bed widths and side slopes. Aqueduct is the Cross drainage arrangement which make the route of water from one side of drain to the other. A channel is said most economical in hydraulics or fluid mechanics if a) It gives maximum discharge for a given cross sectional area and bed shape. Since the best cross section of the canal is trapezoidal for lined canals (Swamee et al 2000), here the trapezoidal cross section has been chosen. Open Channel is a passage through which water flows and has upper surface exposed to atmosphere. The best hydraulic round-bottom triangular section, the determination of which is made possible by this approach, is slightly more efficient than the similar and more widely used trapezoidal section. The canal section may cross over the stream without any modification i.e. Limiting velocities for clear and turbid water from straight channels after aging (Source: Schwab et al., 1993), Velocity Water, Clear colloidal silts, Material m/s m/s, Fine sand, colloidal 0.46 0.76, Sandy loam, noncolloidal 0.53 0.76, Silt loam, noncolloidal 0.61 0.92, Alluvial silts, noncolloidal 0.61 1.07, Ordinary firm loam 0.76 1.07, Volcanic ash 0.76 1.07, Stiff clay, very colloidal 1.14 1.52, Alluval silts, colloidal 1.14 1.52, Shales and hardpans 1.83 1.83, Fine gravel 0.76 1.52, Graded loam to cobbles 1.14 1.52, Graded silts to cobbles 1.22 1.68, Coarse gravel, noncolloidal 1.22 1.83, Cobbles and shingles 1.53 1.68. Specific energy at initial depth ( yc) is given by, 12.5 Velocity Distribution in a Channel Section. Hence the wetted perimeter, for a given discharge should be minimum to keep the cost down or minimum. This increases the command area of the channel. An open channel functioning as an irrigation canal may be a rigid or mobile boundary canal. Book Condition: New. Bairathi New India Publishing Agency, 2012. section lines, etc. Hardcover. Conservation of water supplies is increasingly important as the demand continues to increase and new sources of supply are becoming increasingly scarce. This is because each region has its own different conditions, constraints, and limits from the topographic and financial point of views.
