|Abstract:||Ttio thesis describes the 1nvos igations ca iod out by the author on some aspect of the resistance of artifL ctal2,g ugiaonod open chanGls in relation to those of alluvial ohannoic 2 he studios aimed st predicting the roughness p1'EOtGD5 for open ch3flf101S ith special reference to r bilo boundaries.
