Description :
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of rill morphology on roughness and hence to assess the Manning–Strickler roughness coefficient (kSt) by rill morphological data. A laboratory experiment was set up to analyse rill hydraulics and roughness of I.) Free Developed Rill (FDR) flows and II.) Straight Constrained Rill (SCR) flows in the flume. It is highlighted that rill roughness was highly variable and relates to rill morphology. The AA. conclude that flow path tortuosity can be used to assess local friction effects.
