Abstract: Experiments were conducted in meandering channels with non-mobile and mobile beds to measure flow rates, velocities, turbulent kinetic energies, bedforms and sediment transport rates for overbank flows. The behaviour of bedform in meandering channels with overbank flows was observed using digital photogrammetry, with velocity measurements taken with a Laser Doppler Anemometer. The bedform structure and velocity distributions along the meandering channel were obtained for bank full flow and three overbank flow depths. Important interactions between the flow structure and bedform were observed along the meandering channel. The sediment transport rates collected during the experiment showed three phases; an increase in the sediment transport rate up to the bankfull level, a small decrease as the flow goes overbank up to a relative depth ratio of 0.3 and then an increase again for higher flow depths. The regions of higher turbulent kinetic energy were identified. The total energy losses due to friction, secondary flow and interfacial turbulence in the lower layer flow of the main channel were compared in both the non-mobile and mobile bed cases.
