Blanckaert, K. (author)The migration rate of sharp meander bends exhibits large variance and indicates that some sharply curved bends tend to stabilize. These observations remain unexplained. This paper examines three hydrodynamic processes in sharp bends with fixed banks and discusses their morphological implications: secondary flow saturation, outerbanks cells, and...journal article 2011

Olesen, K.W. (author)A twodimensional horizontal mathematical model of the flow and bed topography in alluvial channel bends is presented. The applicability of the model is restricted to channels of which the widthdepth ratio is large, the Froude number is small, bed load is dominant and grain sorting effects are negligible. First order analyses of the...report 1985

Kalkwijk, J.P.T. (author), De Vriend, H.J. (author)The mathematical model presented describes the flow in rivers of which: i the depth is small compared with the width, ii the width is small compared with the radius of curvature, iii the horizontal length scale of the bottom variations is of the order of magnitude of the width. Within these limits, the channel alignment can be arbitrary and it...report 1980

De Vriend, H.J. (author)This report describes an extensive experiment on steady turbulent flow in a rather sharply curved Ushaped flume with a shallow rectangular crosssection, under almost the same conditions as earlier, less extensive measurements in the same flume. The experiment was carried out as a part of a research project aiming at a mathematical model of the...report 1979

De Vriend, H.J. (author)A mathematical model of steady, fully developed laminar flow in curved ducts is developed and used to derive a simplified computation method to be applied in another mathematical model predicting the flow in river bends. The laminar flow model is verified by comparing its results with analytical, numerical and experimental results reported in...report 1978

De Vriend, H.J. (author)The axisymmetrical, viscous flow in curved channels is considered in the case where the hydraulic radius of the crosssection is small with respect to the average radius of curvature of the bend. First Ananyan's theory on this subject is reconsidered, using a regular perturbation method. The results are applied to a specific channel with a...report 1972
