Details of hydraulic design include parameters such as: discharge, velocity, width, depth, pressure, energy, momentum, and shear stress. Appropriate consideration of these important factors enables provision of adequate water conveyance capacity in open channels and pressurized pipes. It also provides for accurate water measurement structures and effective means of control, as well as allowing evaluation of scour and sedimentation.
