This text collects and collates the significant advances in analytical methods for alluvial channel design, river morphology, and mathematical simulation of river channel changes. It presents a complete analytical treatment of river morphology and its
responses to environmental and human-made changes from the engineering point of view. For professionals in flood control, bridge design, irrigation and waterways, this book is a current, comprehensive refresher and reference. It is also a textbook in river sedimentation. Analytical and empirical methods are detailed for solving erosion and sedimentation problems, hydraulic design of channels, bridges, and related structures. From a sound physical foundation, mathematical techniques are
presented for simulating river channel changes, and computer-aided analysis and design for river projects are illustrated by abundant examples.
