Abstract:

This manual presents the techniques and procedures that are used to investigate and resolve river engineering and analysis issues and the associated data requirements. It also provides guidance for the selection of appropriate methods to be used for planning and conducting the studies. Documented herein are past experiences that provide valuable information for detecting and avoiding problems in planning, performing, and reporting future studies. The resolution of river hydraulic issues always requires prediction of one or more flow parameters be it stage i.e., water surface elevation, velocity, or rate of sediment transport. This manual presents pragmatic methods for obtaining data and performing the necessary computations it also provides guidance for determining the components of various types of studies.
