Abstract : In a contract modification the PI and research assistant undertook two additional tasks related to the development of improved bank stability algorithms for use in modeling river width adjustment. These tasks were not specified in the original contract, but were added later in order to take advantage of later developments and strengthen the final product. The work at Colorado State University concerned liaison between the researchers performing this project and researchers at CSU working on development of bank stability models for the Demonstration Erosion Control Project on the US Army Engineer, Waterways Experiment Station. The visits to District Offices were designed to allow researchers to discuss bank stability and modeling with practising engineers in order that the researchers could ensure that the model that they were producing was useful and relevant to the needs of river engineers.
