Bed shear stress distribution in straight channels with arbitrary cross section

Henrik Bo Christensen, Jørgen Fredsøe

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    The bed shear stress distribution in straight open channels is affected by mechanisms as bed curvature of the cross section profile, shear diffusion, and secondary currents. This paper compares some analytical and numerical methods to estimate the bed shear stress distribution. The methods are presented in such a way that the sophistication is increased throughout the paper.
