The SERC Flood Channel Facility
SYNOPSIS The Paper describes a new large central experimental facility which has recently been built to investigate the hydraulic behaviour of rivers and flood alleviation channels when they flow
Factors Affecting Conveyance in Meandering Compound Flows
This paper brings together recent data from the large-scale Flood Channel Facility, Wallingford, England, with other model studies to investigate the main parameters affecting conveyance in
Discharge prediction in straight compound channels using the mixing length concept
A method for predicting the depth-discharge relationship in a compound channel is developed and applied to two different sets of experimental results. The method uses a mixing length formulation to
Flow structures in a two-stage channel with a mobile bed
Abstract A large scale model hydraulic study of inbank and overbank river flow, using a regular sinuous river channel with a mobile bed, was carried out in the UK Flood Channel Facility at Hydraulics
Behavior of Meandering Overbank Channels with Graded Sand Beds
Measurements of velocity distributions, depth variation, and sediment transport have been made under bankfull and overbank flow conditions in meandering channels with a graded sand bed, using the
Discharge estimation in small irregular river using LSPIV
This paper reports on an estimation method used to quantify discharge in the small irregular channel of the River Blackwater, using large-scale particle image velocimetry (LSPIV). The test reach (250
Hydraulic Jump as Mixing layer
In free‐surface water flows the hydraulic jump has usually been considered a turbulent reverse roller supported by an underlying and expanding stream. The air‐entrainment aspect of the water surface
