Effects of Particle Shape on Bedload Transport
The effects of particle shape on bedload transport in gravel-bed streams are examined using a similarity approach and fractional transport analysis for data from Piceance Creek, Colorado,...

A General Theory of Channel Adjustment in High Gradient Streams
The paper presents a theory of channel adjustment in high gradient streams. This theory states that given sufficient energy, stream channels will adjust their dimensions and flow hydraulics...

Estimating Local Bed Shear Stress in Large Gravel-Bed Rivers
The local bed shear stress τo1 cannot be directly measured and is typically estimated using flow observations in various theoretical or empirical...

Coarse Sediment Transport and the Maintenance of Fish Habitat in the Upper Colorado River
An analysis of the relation between discharge and boundary shear stress is presented for an alluvial reach of the Colorado River near Grand Junction, CO. The analysis indicates that the...

Boundary Shear in the Vicinity of River Banks
Some experimental data are presented concerning the distribution of boundary shear stresses in trapezoidal open channels for both inbank and overbank flows. The local shear stresses on...

Determination of Geometry and Stress Distribution of an Optimal Stable Channel
A numerical model which determines the geometry of a threshold channel was recently developed (Diplas and Vigilar, 1992). This is important in the design of irrigation canals, channelization...

Carpet Flow Analysis
Under very high flow conditions, sediment may be transported either in a suspension or by carpet flow, as defined by Bagnold. This study examines the theoretical conditions for carpet...
