What is hydraulic mean depth?

Ajay said: (Oct 23, 2016)  
Hydraulic mean depth: Hydraulics, mean depth, hm, is defined as the depth which, when multiplied by the top water surface width, T, is equal to the irregular section area, A.

The equation for hydraulic mean depth, hm, is,

Hydraulic Radius : Hydraulic radius, Rh, is defined as the area of the flow section divided by the wetted perimeter, Pw.

Hydraulic mean depth = 4A/m.
A = area of flow.
m = wetted perimeter.

That portion of the perimeter of a stream-channel cross-section that is in contact with the water.
