Volumetric displacement of flow depth by obstacles, and the determination of friction factors in shallow overland flows

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Large roughness elements such as stones or plant stems (obstacles) influence the depth of overland flows in 2 ways. The first effect is a dynamic one, involving frictional retardation of the flow and associated reduction in flow speeds. The second influence is static, and arises from the upward volumetric displacement of flow depth because of the submerged volume of the obstacles.To understand the true frictional drag arising from obstacles , a correction must be made for the volumetric displacement. A method for making this correction is outlined
