In 1965, Rouse critically reviewed hydraulic resistance in open channels on the basis of fluid mechanics. He pointed out the effects of cross-sectional shape, boundary nonuniformity, and flow unsteadiness, in addition to viscosity and wall roughness that are commonly considered. This paper extends that study by discussing the differences between momentum and energy resistances, between point, cross-sectional and reach resistance coefficients, as well as compound/composite channel resistance… Expand
LONG WAVES IN OPEN CHANNELS – THEIR NATURE, EQUATIONS, APPROXIMATIONS, AND NUMERICAL SIMULATION
The long wave equations for waves in rivers and canals are considered and some results obtained that contradict current understanding and practice. Some generalisations of traditional coefficientsExpand
Ecohydraulics of instream flow alterations
Increasingly sustainable river management efforts are underway to limit the damage on freshwater ecosystems caused by anthropogenic hydro-engineering activities. This is exemplified by engineeredExpand

Critical Analysis of Open-Channel Resistance
Despite continued progress in the analysis of closed-conduit and boundary-layer resistance, many of the results have been slow to find their way into the hydraulics of open channels. In this paper anExpand
Shape Effects on Resistance in Flood-Plain Channels
For flow computation in flood plain channels, the flow cross section is usually divided into subsections to ensure hydraulic homogeneity. However, the question of whether or not to include theExpand
Modern approach to design of grassed channels
The resistance to flow in a grassed channel is linked directly to the relative roughness of the flow through long‐accepted boundary‐layer principles. The difference between flow over grass liningsExpand
Resistance Relationships for Alluvial Channel Flow
The problem of resistance to flow over alluvial beds has received considerable attention during the post-war years. Almost all the problems associated with alluvial channels—e.g., preparation ofExpand
RESISTANCE TO FLOW IN ALLUVIAL CHANNELS WITH COARSE BED MATERIALS
The hydraulics of alluvial streams and sediment transport in alluvial channels is not yet well understood and consequently poorly described. In particular the topic of flow resistance has receivedExpand
Unified Theory on Power Laws for Flow Resistance
Two general power formulas, one for hydraulically smooth flows and the other for fully rough flows, are derived in a rational way from the widely accepted logarithmic formulas for the velocityExpand
Open-Channel Flow Equations Revisited
Equations of continuity, momentum, and energy in integral form are formulated herein by integrating over the cross section the corresponding equations for a point and then transformed intoExpand
Flow Resistance in Coarse Gravel Bed Rivers
Flow resistance relations are deduced from data on coarse gravel bed reaches of New Zealand rivers. Measurements of hydraulic variables were made during reasonably uniform subcritical flows at crossExpand
Resistance Coefficients for Steady Spatially Varied Flow
In spatially varied flow three coefficients in Weisbach f form are involved which are sometimes termed resistance coefficients. They are the frictional resistance coefficient, the dissipated energyExpand
