Nickzom Calculator Calculates the Hydraulic Depth of Flow in Open Channels | Fluid Mechanics

Hydraulic depth can be defined as the cross-sectional area of flow divided by the top width of surface.

Hydraulic depth is a very crucial parameter in calculations dealing with fluid mechanics and flow in open channels.

The formula for computing hydraulic depth is:

R = A / T

Where:
R = Hydraulic Depth
A = Cross-sectional Area of Flow
T =  Top Width or Top Surface Water Width

For Example:

Find the hydraulic depth of flow in an open channel where the cross-sectional area is 120 m2 and the top width is 12 m.

From the example we can see that the cross-sectional area is 120 m2 and the top width is 12 m.

R = 120 / 12
R = 10

Therefore, the hydraulic depth is 10 m.

Now, I would love to show you how to use Nickzom Calculator The Calculator Encyclopedia to get answers for your questions on hydraulic depth.

The Calculator Encyclopedia Calculates the Position of Turning Point for a Vehicle (Vehicle Dynamics)

Calculating the position of turning point for a vehicle must put into consideration the x co-ordinate and y co-ordinate positions of turning point.

There are various parameters you need to be able to calculate these positions. I would start to with how Nickzom Calculator calculates the position of turning point (x co-ordinate).

You are required to have 4 parameters to get the answer for the position and these parameters are:

  • Steer Angle of the Rear Outer Wheel
  • Rear Track
  • Distance of Rear Wheel from Mass Center
  • Steer Angle of Rear Inner Wheel

To access this functionalities in Nickzom Calculator, you need to purchase our professional version – Nickzom Calculator+ (The Calculator Encyclopedia). You can access this software via any of these channels:
