Abstract: Rational regime relationships for the width, depth and slope of a channel in equilibrium are developed using the Ackers and White sediment transport formulae and the White, Paris and Bettess friction relationships, together with the principle of maximum sediment transporting capacity. Favorable comparisons are made with data from sand and gravel channels and with existing empirical regime relationships.
