uniform flow
1. In channels, a flow whose velocity and discharge do not vary along the channel's length.

2. In groundwater, a flow whose velocity and direction are the same at all points in the field of flow. Non-uniform flow in channels results from changes in the cross-sectional shape or discharge along the channel's course.
