Introduction: A preliminary study of a system of experimental baffles was conducted in the bank-stabilization flume at the Waterways Experiment Station during November 1950 for the purpose of obtaining general indications as to the effectiveness of baffles in preventing caving of a concave bank, in influencing the alienment and location of a crossing, and in closing off a back channel or chute. The study was requested by the Vicksburg District, CE, with the proviso that the initial investigation should be limited to preliminary testing; complete tests would be requested later if results of the preliminary teats were encouraging.
