Ghodsian [3] studied hydraulic characteristics of sharp crested triangular and results showed that Di Marchi's coefficient for this weir depends upon Froude number of main channel, apex angle, and weir height to upstream depth.
Equation (8) clearly shows that, as the Froude number decreases (i.

The effects of the length of the spur dike, the wing length of the spur dike and Froude number on the scour and flow field around a T-shape spur dike in a 90 degree bend were investigated in this study.
The new bulb shape is especially useful for ships operating at speeds corresponding to a Froude number (based on ship length) Fn < 0.
On the basis of similarity criteria discussed in the previous section, Froude number can be used to assess the water flow rate and other parameters on the basis of similarity criteria.
The variation of axial pressure gradient dp/dx with Froude number Fr for [phi] = 0.
The fore part of the hull form has been optimized for a single speed corresponding to the Froude number Fr = 0.
In the case of feline lapping the Froude number is near 1, indicating that inertia and gravity are roughly in balance in the water column pulled up by a cat's tongue.
Complex hydraulic variables (shear velocity, roughness shear velocity, inferred boundary Reynolds number, Reynolds number, Froude number, shear stress), substrate roughness, relative roughness, and physicochemical variables (water temperature, conductivity and pH) were used in order to identify those significantly related with the distribution of macroinvertebrate assemblages.
It was noted that upstream Froude number became less than 2.
Epstein (1988) used Taylor's wave theory to predict the motion of the interface and showed that the Froude number (Fr) is a constant for this regime.
