Article
Pool–riffle sequences are common bed forms in mountain rivers that have a significant effect on hydraulic and hydro-environment characteristics. Relatively few studies exist on the comparison of two and three dimensional modeling for bed forms in gravel channels. In this paper, flow structure and habitat modeling are performed in an urban river, by...

Pools and riffles in gravel-bed rivers have a major effect on the variables of the flow equations. Obtaining measurements of these variables requires comprehensive research conducted in rivers. Detailed measurements were taken from one reach of the Kaj River, Iran. The subsequent results showed a phase shift for: X-component of velocity, near bed v...

Experiments have been carried out in a flume with one 2D pool-riffle sequence and one 3D pool-riffle sequence, respectively. Objectives of this study are to determine whether or not the convergence of lateral flow exists. Variations of the near-bed shear stress have been studied. The characteristics of the secondary currents along a pool-riffle seq...

Field observations showed that in many gravel-bed rivers, rice stems and gravel interact with each other and affect the flow structure. This calls to conduct research in more details in laboratory to better understand impacts of interaction between rice stems and gravel bed rivers on the flow structure. The outcome of such investigations can improv...

This research presents recent advances on morphodynamic modeling over gravel dunes. Boundary-layer separation over gravel fixed dunes is investigated by Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry (ADV). Using the measurements of flow over dunes at laboratory scale, examined the influence of dune lee sides on the separation of flow. Experiments were conducted in...

Experiments were conducted in an 8 m long, 40 cm wide, and 60 cm deep re-circulating flume with vegetated banks and gravel bed to study the effects of accelerating and decelerating flows on the flow structure. Significant dip phenomenon was observed in velocity profiles under decelerating flow and the velocity defect law was not suitable due to the...

Vegetation on banks of natural channels exercises a significant influence on the flow structure and in turn on the velocity distribution as well as the distribution of Reynolds stress (the random turbulent fluctuations in fluid momentum). This study experimentally investigated the effect of vegetation on banks on accelerating flow in a gravel-bed f...

Friction factor plays a fundamental role in hydraulic analysis and design. In coarse-bed rivers friction factor depends on grain size and bed forms. Considering boundary-layer characteristics, this study first determines the total friction factor in gravel-bed rivers with bed forms. Then it determines the grain friction factor by the Keulegan and t...
