Title Contributions to the Question of a Velocity Formula and Roughness Data for Streams, Channels and Closed Pipelines
Creator Strickler, A.
Description This widely referenced, but seldom seen report is of both historic and engineering interest. While much of the work presented has since been eclipsed by more recent work, the velocity equation for open channels (Eq. 37) is still in use. It is interesting to learn how this equation came into being, particularly in light of the fact that it predates the well known von Karman-Prandtl logarithmic velocity distribution equation. Also of interest, is the plethora of velocity equations for open...
