  • The stability criterion of maximum flow efficiency (MFE) has previously been found inherent in typical alluvial channel flow relationships, and this study investigates the general nature of this criterion using a wider range of flow resistance
  • and bedload transport formulae. This study provides support for the use of the criteria of MFE, maximum sediment transporting capacity and minimum stream power for understanding the operation of alluvial rivers, and also addresses limitations to the direct
  • Hydraulic geometry and maximum flow efficiency as products of the principle of least action
  • Carrying capacity ; Channel geometry ; Concept ; Stream ; Stream flow
  • . The theoretical results obtained here demonstrate that maximum flow efficiency (MFE) determines stable alluvial channel geometry and that this is a product of both maximum sediment transporting capacity (MSTC) and minimum stream power (MSP). Furthermore
  • This study finds that by introducing a channel form factor (width/depth ratio), the self-adjusting mechanism of alluvial channels can be illustrated directly with the basic flow relations of continuity, resistance and sediment transport
  • Vegetation and channel variation; a case study of four small streams in southeastern Australia
  • Australia ; Channel geometry ; Gravel ; New South Wales ; River bed ; Sand ; Stream ; Stream flow ; Vegetation
  • The purpose of this paper is to examine variations in vegetation along 4 small streams in the Illawara region of southeastern Australia, to develop appropriate vegetation categories or indices that reflect the influence of vegetation on channel
  • variations of these selected streams, and to compare these indices with those developed elsewhere in terms of broadly recognised hydraulic geometry relationships.

  • This paper examines the existence of sand-dominated ridge-form anabranching rivers in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. It describes their channel and ridge morphology, sedimentology and stratigraphy, discusses stream flow and sediment

  • Anastomosing rivers are characterized by multiple channels separated by islands excised from the floodplain. Their status relative to the continuum concept of channel pattern is assessed with channel pattern defined in terms of three variables: flow
