For a given flow rate through an open channel, the variation of specific energy with flow depth
Question:
For a given flow rate through an open channel, the variation of specific energy with flow depth is studied. One person claims that the specific energy of the fluid will be minimum when the flow is critical, but another person claims that the specific energy will be minimum when the flow is subcritical. What is your opinion?
