Abstract

Experiments with the 10 m Flood Channel Facility at HR Wallingford, UK, indicate a fundamental dependency of the overbank deposition pattern of channel suspended sediments on channel planform. Two experiments with straight channel showed deposition concentrated in a berm along the channel bank. A single experiment with a wide meandering channel showed deposition across the entire floodplain tongue between successive meanders. These generalized flume results complement the real-world but site-specific data of field studies
