Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 10.
This guide presents procedures for the design analysis and criteria of design for improved channels that carry rapid and/or tranquil flows. It presents theories and procedures in the hydraulic design of flood control channels, levees, and floodwalls. Typical calculations are presented to illustrate the principles of design for channels under various conditions of flow. The appendixes provide additional information regarding the standardization of riprap gradations, calculation of stone size, and combination of flow at open channel junctions.
