IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Application of yalin and da silva¡¯s regime channel determination method to the middle yangtze river
Author : WENHONG DAI (1), ZHIFANG YAN(2)
ABSTRACT
Assessment of river regime state is of great significance for river flood control, river regulation, wharf construction etc. .
Sarah(2000) had pointed out that in contrast to rational regime channel determination methods of Yang(1976),
Chang(1979), White et al.(1981), etc., Yalin and da Silva¡¯s method is the only rational method which, for a given fluid and
granular material, requires specification of only the flow rate, Q, for the determination of regime channel geometry(regime
width BR, regime depth hR, regime river bed slope SR). In this paper, the effectiveness of Yalin and da Silva¡¯s method is
evaluated by using 323 sets of measured data of flumes and fields. The results show the rationality of the method. In order
to assess the stability of the Middle Yangtze River, the calculated regime values by using Yalin and da Silva¡¯s method
versus the measured values of the key cross-sections are plotted in graphs with perfect agreement line. The results
indicate that the measured channel widths are, in general, fairly close to the calculated regime ones, however, the
calculated regime depth versus the measured depth points fall above the perfect agreement line while the calculated
regime slope versus the measured slope points fall below the perfect agreement line. These mean that the river widths are
nearly at their regime state, the river depths are smaller and the river bed slopes are much larger than the predicted
regime ones, which also indicate that the invested river reach of the Middle Yangtze River has not reached its regime state
yet.
