Because the water versus Froude Number. depth H2 may not be known for design purposes and because other factors may influence V2, the velocity used for correla- tion purposes was simply V1B1/B2. As will be seen later, a fac- c = (gn 2 Vc2 ) ( H1 )0.33 (7.6) tor will be needed in front of V1B1/B2 for optimum fit.
