n Journal of the South African Institution of Civil Engineers - Compound channel design : an environmentally acceptable option for river engineering : technical note

Volume 37, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1021-2019



Modern river engineering must reconcile the often conflicting requirements of people and the natural environment. One approach for increasing channel conveyance while preserving in-stream habitats is the creation of a compound or two-stage cross-section. The conveyance and boundary shear stresses in straight and meandering compound channels can be estimated using new empirical procedures.
