Two methods are used in design of stable channels, one is regime theory of India and other is limiting-tractive-force theory; description of four types of canals which can be designed by modified form of regime theory; use of tractive-force theory for design in coarse noncohesive range; estimation of design slope in any case by regime theory; method of combining strong points of two theories.
