Fluvial processes in gravel-bed rivers

Francisca Segura Beltrán

Abstract


Fluvíal processes ingravel-bed rívers. The bedload transport processes ingravel-bed rívers are not very known. The two most frequent features that characterize these rívers are the presence of a scour layer and the pavement. The coarse surface layer causes a great resistance to flow in gravel-bed rívers. So, flow resítance equations for computing average velocity can be applíed.
