Lock-exchange flows driven by density differences in non-rectangular cross-section channels are investigated in situations that resemble estuaries, navigation canals and hydraulic engineering structures. A simple analytical model considering stratified flows suggests practical relationships corroborated by results of laboratory experiments carried out in a straight channel of triangular cross-section.
