Description: Techical note
PURPOSE: The purpose of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is to demonstrate the utility of the SAM computer programs for evaluating the stability of a stream restoration design on the Truckee River. SAM is an integrated system of computer programs developed under the Flood Damage Reduction and Stream Restoration Research Program sponsored by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE 2000). These programs are designed to satisfy the need for an easy-to-use methodology for use in preliminary screening of alternatives. It is intended to be used primarily as an aid in the design of stable channels.
