Time-averaged flow structure in the central region of a stream confluence

Description :
This paper examines the time-averaged, two-dimensional (downstream and cross-stream) flow sructure within the central region of the confluence hydrodynamic zone (CHZ) at a small stream confluence with an asymmetrical planform. It also examines how flow structure in this part of the CHZ varies with changes in hydrologic conditions and bed morphology. A particular focus is to document the presence or absence of time-averaged, helical motion in the central region of the confluence.
