Figure - Chevrons


Chevrons are dike structures designed as a blunt nosed, arch shape. They are constructed parallel to flow and like regular dikes utilize the energy of the river to redistribute flow and sediment. They are usually placed adjacent to the river bank to allow flow separation and create both channel deepening, side channel development, and middle bar formation.
