  Computation of peak discharge at contractions by Carl E. Kindsvater, , Geological Survey edition, in EnglishPages: where the discharge was known as a result of current-meter measurements. The Discharge Formula. When computing peak discharge at a con- traction, the drop in water-surface level between. an upstream section and a contracted section is related to the corresponding change in velocity.

Method for Computing Peak Discharge for Water Quality Storm D Example Calculation of Peak Discharge for Water Quality Storm Using a acre small shopping center having a acre flat roof, acres of parking, and acres of open space, and using P = "; the weighted volumetric runoff coefficient (Rv) is. 14 Gradually Varied Flow Profiles Physical laws governing the head variation in open channel flow 1) Gravity (So) is the driving force for flow 2) If So = Sf then dE/dx = 0 and flow is uniform (normal depth) 3) Gravity (So) is balanced by friction resistance (Sf) and longitudinal adjustment in specific energy (dE/dx). Measurement of Discharge at Width Contractions and Culverts by Indirect Methods: To determine the peak discharge in culverts, use equations based on continuity and energy. Best results are achieved when the difference between the upstream and downstream water levels is at least ½ foot. Example 14–3 Peak discharge computation using exhibit 14–15 for drainage area of 50 square miles Example 14–4 Develop stage discharge curve for cross section 14–16 Example 14–5 Develop stage discharge curve for meandering reach 14–19 Example 14–6 .
