Abstract: A method called Merged Perpendicular Method (M.P.M.)has been developed to compute the distribution of boundary shear stress across irregular straight channels. In a concave angle of a cross section, computed shear stress is lower than in a convex angle. Comparison with experimental data has shown that the new method calculates more accurate shear stress than other geometrical methods.
