Sediment Management with Submerged Vanes. II: Applications

  title={Sediment Management with Submerged Vanes. II: Applications},
  author={A. Jacob Odgaard and Yalin Wang},
The theory of submerged vanes described in the companion paper is tested with laboratory and field data. The laboratory data are from experiments in curved, and straight, recirculating sediment flumes. The field data are from river bends in which, prior to installation of vanes, the banks were eroding, and from a straightened bridge waterway in which sediment deposits were causing a change of channel alignment, bank erosion, and undermining of the bridge abutment. All data support the theory… CONTINUE READING
