I'm designing a system for a treatment plant consisting of a number of open rectangular channels and partial full circular pipes. I am using software to determine the hydraulic grade line, but when it comes to changes in direction in the channels, I can't seem to find any information on how to calculate the losses in bends for open channels. There are many software programs for straight runs, but in the real world, there are lots of bends. Does anyone know of software or the methodology to calculate this?
