Abstract: Information on the nature of boundary shear stress distribution in simple and meandering open channel are required to solve a variety of river hydraulics and engineering problems so as to get a basic understanding of the flow resistance relationship, calculation of energy losses, understanding the mechanism of sediment transport, design of stable channels, revetments etc. Distribution of boundary shear stress depends mainly on the channel geometry and the structure of the secondary flow cells. In a meandering channel, the complex flow mechanism causes significant variation in the distribution of shear around its wetted perimeter. Therefore, evaluation of boundary shear stress distribution at various locations of the wetted perimeter gives a better insight into the problem. Literature shows that the investigators have studied the boundary shear distribution mostly for shallow channels having low sinuosity. Reports on boundary shear distribution for deep and highly meandering channels ar...
