River mechanics by pierre y jlien is a necessary companion to erosion and sedimentation by the same author each book is written for a professional looking to better their understanding of river or stream mechanics and how to repair damaged sections of a river by understanding the way river forces are applied to channels. River mechanics the geometry and pattern of river channels adjust to significant changes in the water discharge size and quantity of sediment supplied to the channel when the quantity of water and sediment over a period of years remains relatively constant the channel geometry and pattern vary about a mean of quasi equilibrium conditions. This textbook offers a thorough analysis of rivers from upland areas to oceans it scrutinizes select methods underlining both theory and engineering applications emphasizing the mechanics of flood wave propagation and sediment transport in rivers the text covers fundamental principles engineering analysis and engineering design with problems examples and case studies throughout. The river mechanics engineering section within the hydraulics and utility program area is responsible for supporting the design process by providing critical information to the roadway and bridge design teams with regards to large culverts or bridges over state waterways
