Title: Stable channel profiles
Authors: Glover, Robert E. (Robert Ellsworth), 1896-

Abstract: In order to deal intelligently with certain problems of maintenance of channels in erodible materials, it is important to know what shape and dimensions a channel should have in order to avoid changes of cross section due to scour or sediment deposition. A knowledge of stable shapes finds application to the problem of designing canals in earth and to the problems of river regimen. The computations of stable shape patterns described herein have been made at the request of Mr. E. W. Lane who has also laid down the basis for the computations.
