Description: Technical report
INTRODUCTION: This paper has been prepared for two purposes: a. For the Mississippi River Commission Potamology Board in partial compliance with a request from the President, Mississippi River ‘Commission, for a canvass of literature on river stabilization. b. For the Corps of Engineers Committee on Channel Stabilization, in compliance with OCE letter, 1 February 1962, subject, “Committee on Channel Stabilization.” Although paragraph 3 of the letter referred to in subparagraph b calls for a “brief” summary paper on past, present, and future research activities on channel stabilization problems, this paper has been made more comprehensive. The reason for this is that although a great amount of research on channel stabilization has been conducted, much of it has either never been reported, or if reported has been given only limited distribution. As a matter of fact, much of the results of this research is not available in the permanent libraries or files of the offices concerned and thus for all practical purposes is nearly lost. At any rate, much of the research is not readily available to those interested in the subject, and might not be found by researchers not personally aware that it has believed for many years that a paper little-known research should be written, so has been accomplished. The author summarizing this unreported or and welcomes the opportunity to do so.
