Abstract

Rivers and land drainage channels periodically overtop their banks and flow in the ‘out of bank’ condition. Under these circumstances, the interaction between the generally slower moving water on the flood plains and the faster moving water in the main channel, affects the flow structure in a number of ways and makes the prediction of the stage discharge relationship difficult.
