Serial Information: Transactions of the American Society of Civil Engineers, 1961, Vol. 126, Issue 1, Pg. 505-534

Document Type: Journal Paper


Roll waves and slug flows are established as two distinctly different wave patterns and are studied phenomenologically in inclined open channel; characteristics of flow are expressed in terms of pertinent physical properties; theory is presented and reference is made to similar phenomena in allied fields in which mathematical analyses exist.
