Nonuniform-unsteady flow in open channels with streamwise sloping beds having uniform upward seepage is theoretically analyzed. Expressions for the Reynolds stress and bed shear stress are developed, assuming a modified logarithmic law of velocity profile due to upward seepage, and using the Reynolds and continuity equations of two-dimensional open channel flow. The computed Reynolds stress profiles are in agreement with the experimental data.
