Abstract: The velocity distribution and bed deformation patterns in a meandering channel with consecutive bends were investigated by using both an experimental study and a 3-D flow and sediment transport model. The simulated results from the 3-D model agree well with the experimental data. The flow structure and bed deformation patterns in channel bends with different flow conditions were analyzed. Modeled results demonstrated that the velocity distribution and bed deformation in the meandering channel depend mostly on …
