C is the Chezy coefficient (usually meters 1/2 /seconds). Which is C= 1/n * (S) 1/6 C is the Chezy Coefficient. N is Manning's roughness coefficient. S is the hydraulic radius or water depth (usually meters). S is the hydraulic radius or water depth (usually meters). D is the bottom slope (usually meters/meters). A3.) Sediment Transport: Qs = k * Qw^2 * S^2 Qs is the estimated sediment transported. K is the particle size. Qw is the discharge per unit width. S is the channel slope. A4.) A5.) A6.)
