Document Type: Journal Paper


An experimental investigation of the variation of the resistance coefficient of cylindrical piers in a rectangular channel was conducted. The resistance coefficient was determined as a function of the Froude number, of the relative depth of the oncoming flow, and of the relative spacing of the piers.
