Hydraulic Radius of a Partially Full Pipe (Less than Half Full) formula

\(\large{ r_h =  \frac  {  A_c }  { P_w }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ r_h }\) = hydraulic radius

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section of flow

\(\large{ \theta }\)   (Greek symbol theta) = degree

\(\large{ h }\) = height

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ r }\) = radius

\(\large{ P_w }\) = wetting perimeter
