In this case, the V-shape bamboo bandalling structures are constructed with 45° angle with the flow direction. The experimental setup is facilitated with both the flood and ebb tide from upstream to downstream and vice versa. There is an arrangement at the upstream for flow entry and flow out and also the same arrangement in the downstream to ensure the flood and ebb tide. For this reason, riverbank as well as riverbank sedimentation which is demonstrated in the real Rupsha River near the city of the Khulna, Bangladesh.
