Geometric Calculations for NonCircular Open Channels 
Compute hydraulic radius, wetted perimeter, and area for trapezoidal, rectangular, and triangular open channels 

Noncircular open channel geometry calculation is mobiledevicefriendly as of September 2, 2014 Units in open channel geometry calculator: You may enter numbers in any units, so long as you are consistent. (L) means that the variable has units of length (e.g. meters). (L^{2}) means that the variable has units of length squared (e.g. m^{2}). Diagram and Equations for open channel geometry calculator: z is side slope of trapezoidal and triangular channels, defined as horizontal to vertical ratio. Both sides of the channel are assumed to have the same side slope. Equations (note that R=A/P): The noncircular open channel geometry calculation does not check for unreasonable inputs. Please enter positive values.
