The perennial supply of good quantity and quality of water along with a host of other benefits such as fertile and plain landmasses constituting the floodplains suitable for growth of crops and fodder, water connectivity to major cities both intra state and interstate etc. have made the rivers very attractive destination for dense population to settle on their floodplains. However during flood times ironically the same rivers are also guilty of destruction of the very life they seem to sustain. These compound channels are extremely complex from analysis point of view due to the presence of a number of geometrical and physical parameters and hence have attracted the attention of researchers in last half century. Geometrically the main river section is often narrow and deep whereas the floodplains are wide and shallow associated with considerable exchange of momentum between the main channel and floodplain. From practical point of view engineers are often entrusted not only with the task of accurate prediction of stage discharge curve but also finding distribution of velocity and boundary shear stress across the whole compound section for a number of floodplain design measures. It is nearly impossible to get the data in field condition during flood times in rivers. So laboratory data and validation to river data has become the most challenging tasks to researchers. Many theoretical, mathematical, and numerical models have been investigated by different investigators to predict these flow variables of river interacting with floodplain.
