Effects of bend radius on flow around a configuration of bendway weirs: insight from a numerical model, The
Bendway weirs have been used and refined for decades by hydraulic engineers to control thalweg location within alluvial rivers and to decrease flow velocity along the outer bank of channel bends. Although these structures have been used in a variety of applications, there are still a wide range of acceptable design parameters that vary in accordance with the specific design methodology being used. Since the early 2000s, Colorado State University's Hydraulics Lab has assisted The U.S Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) in refining the design of bendway weirs and similar in-stream rock structures. During ...
