Abstract: Abstract: A desirable design criterion for an enclosed harbor is .that the channel connecting it with navigable· waters be self-maintaining. This condition will prevail where sediment movement is negligible, or in the case of moving sediment, where tidal or river discharge is sufficient to maintain acceptable channel dimensions. A method to predict the stable configuration of such a channel is presented in this paper. A relationship between stable channel cross-sectional area., cross-sectional shape, and bottom elevation of the channel and the water discharge through the channel is determined using the geometric characteristics of nearby natural channels and the hydraulic regimes that sustain those channels.
