comment How much water must flow trough canal to maintain a constant water deep?
You are right. I initially asked this question because I was wondering how river rafting ride builders determine how much water must flow trough the ride to maintain a certain deep. I should probably have mention this is in OP. As you said, the path has many turns and curves which might make it difficult to calculate. Maybe they build a smaller scale model first, or is this based mostly on experience ?

comment How much water must flow trough canal to maintain a constant water deep?
There is two things i'm not sure to understand : 1) from v = ax^2 + bx + c how did you find that c = 0, b = -2ha, a = -2/3... ? (you integrate v(x), but then ?) 2) you said gravity force = phg * sin(alpha) where does this formula came from? (i understand why sin is here and what it does but not the rest).

comment How much water must flow trough canal to maintain a constant water deep?
Hi, first of all this is not homework. I got interest for fluid dynamics and engineering recently and read some of information about it. This is a question i'm looking for since a long time without finding an answer. I'd like to know if Bernoulli's principle can be applied here and if there is a simple answer to this problem. Maybe some conditions are missing. People trying to answer the question are free to change/add some conditions (or neglect some details) if it makes solving the problem easier.
