Analytical Model For Stage-Discharge Estimation In Meandering Compound Channels With Submerged Flexible Vegetation

A natural river often forms as a meandering channel to maintain a balance between bed erosion and sediment deposition. On both sides of a river, floodplains are an ideal habitat for vegetation because they are close to a water source and are not inundated during the majority of the year. When floods occur, floodplains with vegetation are inundated, which can help the main channel carry flow downstream. However, the presence of submerged floodplain vegetation leads to an increase in resistance...
