Abstract:

The hydrodynamic and morphological effects of longitudinal training dams in a lowland river have been investigated using elaborate laboratory experiments and field measurements. The focus of this thesis is twofold: grasping the effect of longitudinal training dams on flow patterns and bed forms, and assessing the steering possibilities for discharge division and sediment transport.
