Title: Development of design method for straight compound channels. Volume 2 : detailed development of design method : part 2 : appendices (252/1/T)
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This report describes the development of new and improved design procedures for two stage (compound) flood channels. This work was carried out by Peter Ackers as consultant to HR Wallingford, with funding made available by the Regional Water Authorities in 1988, prior to their demise when their responsibilities in this context were passed to the National Rivers Authority. Funding was provided in order that such research results are better disseminated within engineering practice. The report consists of two volumes. Volume 1 begins with a Summary and Design Method which effectively provides a Manual for the hydraulic design of two stage channels. The detailed review supporting these new procedures follows, continuing into volume 2, which also contains several Appendices. Hydraulic engineers will find essential information in the first section, Summary and Design Method, but will probably wish to refer to some of the details given in the main body of the report and in the Appendices in order to extend their understanding of the complex behaviour of two stage flood channels.
