Wetted Perimeter of a Rectangular Pipe Channel Calculator

Wetted perimeter is associated with hydraulic diameter or hydraulic radius. The perimeter of the wet cross sectional area is known as the wetted perimeter. The wetted perimeter is used in civil engineering, environmental engineering, hydrology, geomorphology, and heat transfer applications. Here is an online mechanical calculator to calculate the wetted perimeter of a rectangular hydraulic pipe channel.

Formula:

p = b + 2 x h Where, p = Wetted Perimeter of a Rectangular Channel b = Bottom Width h = Depth of Flow

Example

A rectangular pipe with bottom width 15 m and liquid height 10 m has wetted perimeter of
= 15 + ( 2 x 10 )
= 35m
