A Study On The Effect Of Porcupine On The Flow Velocity In A Laboratory Tilting Type Channel Using Physical Modal
In India most of the rivers comprise alluvial deposits. During the monsoon the river banks are eroded and
changed the river bank. Use of permeable structures is a cost effective alternative for the bank protection works.
A dampening action on velocity of flow is achieved by permeable structures. The sediment transport capacity of a flow
mainly depends on velocity. Therefore, the dampening of velocity results in deposition of sediment.
In this present study, the effect of porcupine screen on various flow parameters such as velocity, depth etc. is investigated in
an OCF in a Laboratory Tilting type channel.
