Open channel flow is traditionally modeled as an hyperbolic system of conservation laws, which is an infinite dimensional system with complex dynamics. We consider in this paper an open channel represented by the Saint-Venant equations linearized around a non uniform steady flow regime. We use a frequency domain approach to fully characterize the open channel flow dynamics. The use of the Laplace transform enables us to derive the distributed transfer matrix, linking the boundary inputs to the state of the system. The poles of the system are then computed analytically, and each transfer function is decomposed in a series of eigenfunctions, where the influence of space and time variables can be decoupled. As a result, we can express the time-domain response of the whole canal pool to boundary inputs in terms of discharges. This study is first done in the uniform case, and finally extended to the non uniform case. The solution is studied and illustrated on two different canal pools.
