Geometric adjustment of pools to changes in slope and discharge : a flume experiment

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



To characterize the factors controlling pool shape, 30 different forced pools were created utilizing a 50% triangular constriction in a 0.5-m wide, 6-m long recirculating flume. Pools were scoured from an initial plane bed of sand with a d of 0.25 mm. Pool depth and length were measured and used as dependent variables in least-squares, multiple regression analyses. Discharge, channel-bed gradient and energy slope were the independent variables. Additional linear-regression analyses were conducted with either pool depth or length and stream power. Results indicate that both pool depth and length are primarily a function of discharge
