Al l hydraul i c computati ons
i nvol vi ng f l owi n open channel s
requi re an eval uati on of
the roughness characteri sti cs of the
channel
.
At the present
state of knowl edge, the sel ecti on of
roughness coef f i ci ents f or natural channel s remai ns chi ef l y an
art . There are no resi stance di agrams or quanti tati ve rel ati on-
shi ps avai l abl e si mi l ar to those used f or steady f l owi n uni f orm
pi pes or f or
the
f ri cti onal resi stance
of
shi ps
. Consequentl y the
abi l i ty to eval uate roughness coef f i ci ents f or natural channel s
representi ng a wi de range of condi ti ons must be devel oped
through
experi ence.
The experi ence necessary f or the proper sel ecti on of rough-
ness coef f i ci ents can be obtai ned i n several ways, namel y (1)
to
understand the f actors that af f ect the val ue of the roughness
coef f i ci ent, and thus acqui re a basi c knowl edge of the probl em,
(2) to consul t
a tabl e
of typi cal roughness coef f i ci ents f or chan-
nel s of vari ous types (Woodward and Posey, 1941), and (3) to
exami ne and become acquai nted wi th the appearance of some
typi cal channel s whose roughness coef f i ci ents are known.
Photographs
of
channel s
of
known
resi stance are thus usef ul
i n esti mati ng the roughness characteri sti cs of si mi l ar channel s
.
The photographs and data presented i n thi s report cover a wi de
range i n condi ti ons. Fami l i ari ty wi th the geometry, appear-
ance, and roughness characteri sti cs of
these
channel s wi l l
i mprove the engi neer' s abi l i ty
to sel ect roughness coef f i ci ents
f or other channel s .
To the untrai ned begi nner, the sel ecti on of a
roughness
coef f i ci ent can be no more than a guess; and di f f erent i ndi vi -
dual s obtai n di f f erent resul ts. Furthermore, i t i s someti mes
di f f i cul t to convi nce ei ther the l ayman or the sci enti st that
consi stentl y rel i abl e roughness coef f i ci ents can be sel ected by
trai ned engi neers on the basi s of soundj udgment and experi -
ence. Fortunatel y, even though the, sel ecti on
of the coef -
f i ci ents i s cl assi f i ed as an art, the accuracy of many
sel ecti ons
can be eval uated i n exact engi neeri ng or stati sti cal terms.
The abi l i ty to eval uate the roughness characteri sti cs of
channel s i s i mportant i n the hydraul i c work of the U. S . Geo-
l ogi cal Survey. Thi s abi l i ty, f or exampl e, i s i nvol ved i n the �
methods (Benson and
Dal rympl e, 1966 ; Dal rympl e and Ben-
son, 1966; Bodhai ne, 1966 ;
Matthai , 1966 ; Hul si ng, 1966)
whi ch are used i n def i ni ng
the peak di scharge of most maj or
f l oods. For thi s
reason the Survey mai ntai ns a program
whi chboth trai ns young
engi neers i nthe eval uati on of
channel
roughness and tests the
accuracy of roughness coef f i ci ents by
veteran engi neers. The resul ts
of these tests as reported by
Bai l ey and Ray (1966)
i ndi cate that trai ned engi neers can
sel ect roughness coef f i ci ents wi th
an accuracy of pl us or mi nus
15 percent under
most condi ti ons. These f acts prove that
present
methods are sound but that there i s much roomf or
i mprovement . A quanti tati ve procedure f or
determi ni ng the
roughness characteri sti cs of channel s has been the
goal of
research
i n the Survey and i n other organi zati ons
f or many
years, but as yet l i ttl e
practi cal success has been achi eved.

channel streams were not i ncl uded i n the report because
roughness

def i ned i n terms of si ze of bed materi al and other vari abl es
(Si mons and Ri chardson, 1962) .

PRESENTATI ON OF I NFORMATI ON
A f our- page set consi sti ng of channel data,
pl an
sketches
(not to scal e) and cross secti ons, and photographs, i s presented
f or each reach i n the f ol l owi ng secti on of the report . Each
set of data i s i denti f i ed by the permanent gagi ng- stati on
number and name used by the U. S. Geol ogi cal Survey i n
publ i cati on of streamf l ow- records .
The data tabul ati on shows the l ocati on of the gage and a
ref erence cross secti on, the drai nage area of the
stream,
the
date of the f l ood, the
peak gage hei ght at the gage and
at
sec-
ti on 1 duri ng the f l ood, the peak
di scharge measured
by
cur-
rent- meter method, the computed
roughness coef f i ci ent f or the

of
the
channel ,
the
medi an
bed-
materi al si ze, d o, and the ref erence si ze f or whi ch 84 percent
of the bed materi al i s f i ner, d84.
The
area, top wi dth, mean
depth (area/ top wi dth), hydraul i c radi us, and mean vel oci ty
correspondi ng to the
water- surf ace
el evati on at the ti me of the
peak
are
l i sted
f or each cross secti on. The di stance or l ength
between
cross secti ons and the f al l i n water surf ace between
cross secti ons are al so shown. I nf ormati on f or two or more
peak
di scharges i s avai l abl e at some si tes. These data are
l i sted
accordi ng to the magni tude of di scharge. Data cor-
respondi ng to
the l argest di scharge appear f i rst .
At
several
si tes
a smal l percentage of the f l owoccurred i n
the shal l ow f l ood pl ai n adj acent to the mai n channel . For
each of these si tes the data and computati ons ref l ect the f l ow
of the mai n channel .
Data f or the si te, Rol l i ng Fork at Boston, Ky. , are uni que i n
that roughness coef f i ci ents were computed f or both the over-
f l ow
pl ai n and the mai n channel .
Two
col or photographs taken i mmedi atel y af ter the f l ood
are shownf or each reach . The posi ti on of thecamera and the ���
number of the pi cture are shown on the pl an sketch by a
poi nter, whi ch shows the di recti on i n whi ch the camera was
poi nted. The water l evel at the ti me of the peak i s i ndi cated
i n some
of
the photographs by a hori zontal rod or tape.
The i ni ti al stati on f or cross secti ons i s at the l ef t bank. Pl ots
are arranged so that the l ef t bank appears on the reader' s l ef t .
The water l evel s shown on the cross secti ons correspond to the
water- surf ace prof i l e at the ti me of the peak as def i ned by
