Abstract A digital computer program for solving the basic equations of unsteady flows in rivers and reservoirs has been used since 1966 by TVA to solve a variety of open channel problems. A plexiglass flume was used for laboratory study. Transient wave motions were created by means of an automatic sluice gate system for both reservoir and steady open channel conditions, and experimental velocity and stage data were obtained through the use of high-speed photography and hydrogen-bubble generation. The TVA computer program output was compared to experimental water surface elevations and available top, middle, and bottom centerline profile velocities at a selected observation station.
