nc2: Einstein and Banks method for composite Manning's n

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

Description

This function computes the composite Manning's n using the Einstein and Banks method.

Usage

1
nc2(P, n)

Arguments

P

numeric vector that contains "wetted perimeter of any section i"

n

numeric vector that contains "Manning's n of any section i"

Details

"A composite value of Manning's n for a single channel; that is, for the main channel only of a compound channel or a canal with laterally varying roughness." Source: Sturm page 118.

The equation to find Manning's composite n using the Einstein and Banks method is

n_c = ≤ft[\frac{∑ \limits_{i=1}^N P_i n_i^2}{P}\right] ^ \frac{1}{2}

n_c

Manning's composite n

P

"wetted perimeter of the entire cross section"

P_i

"wetted perimeter of any section i"

n_i

"Manning's n of any section i"

N

"total number of sections into which the wetted perimeter is divided"

Source: Sturm page 118.

Value

numeric vector that contains nc2 as Manning's composite n.
