Q 5) The medium size of the sediment particles in an alluvial channel is 0.4 mm. For a discharge of 3 m3/sec, the Lacey regime slope would be_____?


Two Marks Questions

Q 6) Lacey's scour depth for a stream carrying a discharge of 3 cumecs per meter width having a silt factor 1.2 is______?


Five Marks Questions

Q 7) A culturable command area for a distributary is 12,000 hectares. The intensity of irrigation is 90-percent for Rabi and 80-percent for Kharif crop. The outlet factors for Rabi and Kharif crops are 720 ha/cumec and 775 ha/cumec, respectively. Design a lined canal having hydraulically efficient trapezoidal shape with 2H: 1V side slopes and a bed slope of 1/5000. Assume Manning's roughness coefficient to be 0.014.


Q 8) An area of 40000 ha. has to be irrigated by a canal for growing banana in 15000 ha. and 25000 ha, for growing paddy. The peak water requirements of banana and paddy are 12 cm/month and 16 cm/month respectively and these peak demands occur at the same month. Design a suitable canal section using Lacey's method. Adopt a side slope of 0.5 H:1V.


Q 9) Determine section of Lacey's Regime channel carrying a discharge of 10 m/sec in an alluvium of 0.5 mm


Q 10) Design an irrigation channel in alluvial soil according to Lacey's silt theory with the following data, discharge is 50 m3/sec. Lacey's silt factor = 1, side slope 1/2H: 1V
