The most distinctive alluvial sedimentary deposit is the alluvial fan, a large cone of sediment formed by streams flowing out of dry mountain valleys into a wider and more open dry area. Alluvial sediments are typically poorly sorted and coarse-grained, and often found near playa lakes or aeolian deposits [ 50 ] (see Chap Deserts). bank following the curved bottom), S = sinθ the bottom slope, and h the water depth at the deepest point. The cross-sectional area A and wetted perimeter P are each a function of the water depth h, because as h rises A and P increase in a way that depends on the shape of the channel bed. For example, a channel bed with. Bed shear stress (balance between gravity and force due channel that is 12 m wide encounters an obstruction (see figure), causing the water level to rise above the normal depth at the obstruction and for some distance upstream. The water discharge is m3/s and the channel . channels for example, specific energy and channel roughness are developed in somewhat more detail here than would be expected in an introductory college course. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the physical principles of mechanics, at least to the level covered by a beginning college physics book.

  In this module the bed-level change due to the j-th fraction of sediment (∂Z b,j /∂t) is calculated from the mass-balance equation (16) (1 − P) ∂ Z b, j ∂ t + ∇ Q → b, j = 0 where P=porosity of the bed material; and Q → b, i =fractional bed load flux. A mathematical model of the flow, bed topography and grain size variation in curved alluvial rivers is presented and analyzed with the purpose of obtaining insight into the governing physical processes. The model consists of three sub-models, viz. a depth-integrated flow model, a sediment transport model, and a sediment budget model. Forms of Bed Roughness in Alluvial Channels by D.B. Simons, E.V.
