Geotechnical Aspects of River Bank Erosionby D. J. Hagerty, Univ of Louisville, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
Abstract: The principal geotechnical mechanisms of river bank failure are identified on the basis of extensive field investigations on many different river systems. The role of each factor depends on the geological framework of the site. A case history is presented to illustrate the interaction of geotechnical factors in bank failure.
