Description: Technical report
A typical bendway will be molded in a semi-fixed bed flume. The number of weirs, their spacing and submergence will be varied to determine the effects on tows navigating the reach. The designs will be subjected to a range of current velocities and tow sizes. Final guidance will establish minimum required depths over the weirs and recommended spacing relative to the design size tow.
