HEC-15: Permissible Shear Stress

HEC-15 Section 6.2 – PERMISSIBLE SHEAR STRESS Values for permissible shear stress for riprap and gravel linings are based on research conducted at laboratory facilities and in the field. The values presented here are judged to be conservative and appropriate for design use. Permissible shear stress is given by the following equation: τp = F*.(γs […]

Manning’s n For Riprap-Lined Channels

HEC-15 Section 6.1 – MANNING’S ROUGHNESS Manning’s roughness is a key parameter needed for determining the relationships between depth, velocity, and slope in a channel. However, for gravel and riprap linings, roughness has been shown to be a function of a variety of factors including flow depth, D50, D84, and friction slope, Sf. A partial […]

Trapezoidal Channel: Manning’s n

Caltrans Highway Design Manual Commonly accepted values for Manning’s roughness coefficient are provided in Table 866.3A. The tabulated values take into account deterioration of the channel lining surface, distortion of the grade line due to unequal settlement, construction joints and normal surface irregularities. These average values should be modified to satisfy any foreseeable abnormal conditions […]
