2008), where extensive references and a thorough assessment of current and future research directions can be found. The rapid development of measurement and numerical capabilities in recent years has brought new significant results and the authors feel that it may be useful to highlight recent progress in understanding secondary flows, as well as to identify research challenges and opportunities in studying this phenomenon, while keeping overlap with the previous reviews to the minimum. In particular, the focus of this chapter is on: (i) theoretical frameworks for studying secondary flows, (ii) interrelations between turbulence and secondary flows, and (iii) secondary flow effects on hydraulic resistance, sediment dynamics, and mixing.

Based on extensive experiments in a large, straight, gravel bed flume, Albayrak (2008) explored properties of prevailing coherent structures and their relation to the secondary flow cells. He found that Adrian’s (2007) model of hairpin packets is applicable to the conditions of rough-bed open-channel flows, confirming earlier findings of Hurther et al. (2007). Furthermore, Albayrak (2008) showed that the vertical extension of the hairpin packets is significantly enhanced in upwelling zones of the secondary flow cells and reduced in downwelling zones.

More recently, Yang and Lim (1997) used the mean flow energy balance to hypothesize that the surplus mean energy in any arbitrary flow volume will be transferred along the direction towards the nearest boundary. They applied this assumption to study the bed shear stress distribution in the presence of the secondary currents in uniform straight channels. The potential of the mean energy balance for studying secondary flows is high and needs to be better explored. Below we propose an approach to how the mean energy balance can be utilized to look at possible energy fluxes between primary mean flow, secondary mean flow, and turbulence.
