This manual presents basic principles and technical procedures for analysis of open channel flows in natural river systems. Procedures described herein are considered appropriate and usable for planning, analysis and design of projects and features performed by the Corps of Engineers. Basic theory is presented as required to clarify appropriate application and selection of numerical models. This guidance also presents results of previous numerical model applications to river hydraulics and corresponding field observations.
