The proposed divided resistance approach takes into account the grain resistance, the bed form resistance and the roughness characteristics of the floodplain but it was found to give unsatisfactory prediction of the flow depth for compound channels with rough floodplains. A simple algorithm for stage–discharge prediction based on a lumped resistance approach was then proposed. It requires calibration of the overbank Manning n for a relative depth zero and a coefficient of proportionality, and this is achievable if measurements of the flow depth and velocity are taken for at least three overbank flow discharges. The application of the lumped approach to various flume and field data showed good agreement between the measured and predicted flow depths.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Institution of Civil Engineers||Copyright (published version):||2006, ICE Publishing Ltd||Keywords:||Floods & floodworks;Hydraulics & hydrodynamics;River engineering||DOI:||10.1680/wama.2006.159.3.195||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
