Summary

This chapter derives the at-a-station as well as the downstream hydraulic geometry using the tractive force theory. Here the threshold discharge does not necessarily correspond to the bankfull discharge for at-a-station hydraulic geometry. At a given section, there can be a threshold discharge where the channel is flowing partially. .
