Abstract: Submerged vanes are small river training structures used for protection of streambanks against erosion and for amelioration of shoaling problems in navigation channels, at water intakes, in bridge crossings, and at diversions. The structures function by modifying the near-bed flow pattern and redistributing flow and sediment transport within the channel cross section. The theory of the structures is developed elsewhere. The paper describes the design guidelines and typical applications.
