Abstract

This study reports on experiments concerning the boundary shear stress and boundary shear force distributions in a smooth rectangular flume. Nonlinear regression-based equations are derived, from experimental analysis to give the percentage of the total shear force carried by the walls and mean wall and bed shear stresses around the-wetted perimeter as functions of the ratio of channel width to channel depth.
