An experimental study of channel armoring formed the basis for an empirical technique to determine, for a given logarithmic-normal sediment distribution and for given hydraulic flow properties: (1) If the sediment bed will armor; and (2) if the sediment bed should armor, what will be the geometric mean diameter and standard deviation of the armored surface particles? Conversely, from this technique stable armored channels can be designed for a given earth material by the proper choice of channel dimensions that affect hydraulic parameters. /Author/
