    DITCH RELOCATION/CONSTRUCTION AND TRANSITIONS Relocated or recently constructed ditches are often lined with grass, riprap, or concrete to control erosion resulting from concentrated runoff. Channels with grass lining may be used where the slope does not exceed 5%, and the design velocity will not exceed 5 feet per second. These typeFile Size: KB. Febru PM.

Finally, a simplified version of Thorne’s stream reconnaissance field sheets is presented for collecting data for the stream stability assessment and to provide a record of conditions at each visit.(2) Gary L.

Length of relocation contributed significantly to channel stability only at Stability of relocated stream channels book where its value exceeded channel widths; below channel widths, the effects were dominated by other factors.

Among the factors identified as critical to the stability of relocated channels are: growth of vegetation on banks (40 sites); bank revetment (33 sites); and stability of prior channel (19 sites). Lateral and vertical stability are assessed for unlined channels, in different parts of the United States, that were relocated by highway agencies 10 years or more before assessment.

Median length of natural channel cut off by relocation is 50 times natural channel width, or about 2, ft ( m). tionship of stream stability is shown as a schematic drawing in Figure The drawing shows that the product of sediment load and sediment size is proportional to the product of stream slope and discharge—or stream power.

A change in any one of these variables causes a rapid physical adjustment in the stream channel. Channel Dimension. "Stability of relocated stream channels," Report to Federal Highways Administration, Report No. FHWA/RD/, Washington, DC, Design of spur.

Channel stabilization is stabilizing a channel, either natural or artificial, in which water flows with a free surface. The purpose of this practice is to establish a non-erosive channel. This practice applies to the stabilization of open channels and existing streams or ditches with drainage areas less than 1 File Size: KB.

some channel change as inevitable, a managed riparian zone provides space within which river form and processes can be allowed to adjust.

Managing the riparian zone to improve riverbank stability involves planting native (particularly indigenous) trees, shrubs, grasses and macrophytes in the stream, on the banks and on the stream Size: KB. Stream Stability and Channel Forming Flows A stable stream is one that, over time, maintains a constant pattern, slope, and cross-section, and neither aggrades or degrades.

Stream stability is not the absence of erosion - some sediment movement and streambank erosion is natural. Possible causes of erosion are: • Natural river dynamics. A great deal of effort has been devoted to developing guidance for stream restoration.

The available resources are diverse, reflecting the wide ranging approaches used and expertise required to develop effective stream restoration projects.

Summary of ecological principles to guide stream designs. Tables. Figures. Various definitions of stream channel stability are presented including "the natural stable channel", the graded river, dynamic equilibrium, and regime channels, and a quantitative assessment.

This chapter focuses on the preservation, enhancement, and restoration of stream corridors as well as the design of constructed channels and swales using natural concepts.

Efforts to keep a stream too straight will delay evolution of a stable channel while effortsto stabilize eroding banks of incised channels may be self-defeating in an evolutionary sense, because the stream has to create, through lateral erosion, suf-ficient space for a mean-dering channel to reach its equilibrium meander amplitude.

Similarly, it. channel provided the final cross sectional area of the stream remains the same. Channel Stability (drainage area greater than one square mile) Channels must be stable under conditions existing immediately after construction (as-built condition) and under conditions existing during effective design life (aged condition).

Specifically, the guidance and tools provide support in assessing the current conditions adjacent to a stream crossing and in the upstream watershed to determine design effort, performing the appropriate hydrological and geomorphic analysis using a set of analytical and analog tools, and designing the channel through the stream crossing for stability and sediment balance.

STABILITY OF ALLUVIAL CHANNELS There are three major categories of stream channels: (a) bedrock, (b) alluvial, and (c) partially controlled.

The bedrock channel is fixed in bedrock and is stable over the time span that concerns engineers. The alluvial channel is formed in sediment that has been transported by the stream, and therefore channelFile Size: 5MB.
