The Sedimentation and River Hydraulics Group collects data and performs applied research to solve river engineering problems. The following sections contain manuals, guidelines, and research papers for technologies developed during the course of our project work.
Manuals and Guidelines
- Erosion and Sedimentation Manual 2006
- Reconnaissance Techniques for Reservoir Surveys, Ferrari 2006 (PDF 4.6 MB)
- River Spanning Rock Stuctures Design Guidelines Research Project
