Abstract: Laboratory tests were conducted in a tilting flume to study the effects of overbank flow on the resistance coefficient. Testing was accomplished on a straight and meandering main channel for a symmetrical and asymmetrical floodplain of various widths. Results indicated that a correction must be applied to the resistance formula for shallow-flow depths over the overbank, and the correction factors are presented graphically.
