Abstract

The commonly accepted parameters for sediment transport and resistance to flow of alluvial channels are evaluated and found to be inadequate. A resistance equation and a sediment transport equation are proposed for alluvial channels. Presently used equations are shown to be approximations of combinations of these two equations. The two equations describe channel behavior and sediment transport better than other equations, and they are shown to be particularly effective in describing the effects of changes of temperature on water discharge.
