I could easily imagine an ultra-complex java applet

There is an interesting stack showing
the interaction between the eyes and diverse
I do not remember if Michael J. Lew posted a
link in this list:

I agree that this stack is an interesting and
use of bezier curves. Nice work, Jim!

I noticed that in channels with flat floors
the water velocity is slower than in channels with
cilindrical shaped floors. Is this expected?

How is this stack used by hydraulic Engieners?

Keep up your good work!
