Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling

Abstract: The graded sediment routing and stream bed evolution model of D.K. Borah, C.V. Alonso and S.N. Prasad is expanded by combining with a riverbank erosion model developed by Osman and Thorne. The revised model, called STREAM, is applied to a 12-km reach of the Missouri River, downstream of Gavins Point Dam and preliminary results on changes in bed elevations and river cross sections are compared with observed data.
