The course contents are:

  • Concept of Fluvial Geomorphology
  • Stream forms and classification
  • Quantitative response of the river system
  • Prediction of general river response to change
  • Application of quantitative analysis
  • Application of the concept of the beginning of motion to practical problems
  • Design of stable channels
  • Premissible velocity and tractive forces
  • Method of maximum permissible velocity
  • Method of critical shear stress
  • The ideal stable cross section
