Description: Technical report
FOREWORD: The purpose of this report of the Committee on Channel Stabilization is to acquaint river engineers with the many facets of the complex problems involved in improving and stabilizing the channels of major alluvial rivers, and with the various approaches to solving these problems. The report is not intended to be a manual on open-river regulation measures in alluvial rivers, but, rather, an assessment of the present-day state of knowledge in that field. Actually, the report is a symposium consisting of eight chapters, on as many subjects, involving the work of ten different authors. The individual chapters were authored or coauthored by Committee members, consultants under contract to the Committee, and other selected engineers. Authors of the various chapters are identified in the table of contents and at the heading of the chapters. However, all of the chapters reflect to a considerable degree the knowledge and opinions of the overall Committee and its consultants, as the original draft of each chapter was critically reviewed by all of the Committee members and the two consultants. But in any instances of opinion differences, the opinions of the listed author or coauthors of the respective chapters prevail. It is recognized by the Committee that three exist important gaps in the state of knowledge of channel stabilization, and that much is to be learned through further research and experience. readers of this report are invited to submit comments on the report, as well as contributions of information that will add to the state of knowledge as presented herein (such comments should be addressed to the Chairman, care of Office of the Chief of Engineers, Department of the Army, Washington, D. C, 201325). This volume is published in loose-leaf form to facilitate revision when warranted by additions to the state of knowledge in this field. Copies of this and other reports of the Committee on Channel Stabilization can be obtained from the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, P. O. Box 631, Vicksburg, Mississippi 39180.
