Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
Abstract: This paper shows an example application of a new method being packaged by the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station to aid in the design of stable flood-control channels. A stable channel is defined, the concept of a staged sedimentation study is presented, and example calculations are shown. The importance of a field reconnaissance trip is illustrated.
