Description :
This study reports the results of a large woody debris (LWD) removal experiment in a meander bend along a low-energy stream in the Midwestern United States. The results indicate that the LWD obstruction influenced 3D flow structure in this bend at all flow stages. After the removal of LWD from the bend, both downstream and secondary velocities increased and, though still weak, secondary flow intensified.
