Abstract: Analytical formulas are derived for predicting the transverse flow distribution in river channels based on the cross-sectional geometry and roughness coefficients. Both free surface flows and ice-covered flows are considered. Field data are used to validate the analysis. Applications of this analysis to hydraulic and transport processes in rivers are discussed.
