|Abstract: ||If vegetated regions become part of a river’s flow field, the hydraulic resistance of vegetation affects
the overall conveyance. Several descriptions exist to describe this type of flow; among them are
empirical relations and relations that are process-based. In the current work three expressions are
considered that have equal input parameters, similar levels of complexity but different theoretical
backgrounds. The performance of the three methods is evaluated by comparison with flow
measurements (collected from literature), and limits are given for their practical use.|
|Description: ||Paper presented at The Seventh International Conference on HydroScience and Engineering (ICHE) hosted by the College of Engineering at Drexel Univeristy on September 10-13, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference theme was IT in the Field of HydroSciences. It included several mini-symposia that emphasized IT topics in HydroSciences and the yearly meeting of the metadata group of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange organization.|
