the increased discharge resulting from urbanization results in significant channel changes and downstream sedimentation.

the increased discharge resulting from urbanization results in significant channel changes and downstream sedimentation. The major discharge controlling channel form is bank full discharge which occurs once a year

assume prior to urbanization the bank full discharge is 2.5 m^3/s with a mean velocity of 0.95 m/s. As a result of urbanization the volume of the annual peak discharge is changed to 8.4 m^3/s with a mean velocity of 1.10 m/s

what increase in channel cross-section would be needed to accommodate this flow....and how much sediment (metric tons) would produce from 1500m stretch of channel

1 m^3 of soil weighs 1650 kg

Q = vA

Q= discharge (m^3/s)
v = velocity
A= cross-sectional area of channel
