HHM - Classification of Bed Slope Profiles
CLASSIFICATION OF CHANNELS FOR GRADUALLY-VARIED FLOW
Open channels are classified as being mild, steep, critical, horizontal, and adverse in gradually-varied flow studies. If for a given discharge the normal depth of a channel is greater than the critical depth, the channel is said to be mild. If the normal depth is less than the critical depth, the channel is calledsteep. For a critical channel, the normal depth and the critical depth are equal. If the bottom slope of a channel is zero, the channel is called horizontal. A channel is said to have an adverse slope if the channel bottom rises in the flow direction. In summary:
