Notes:

Automated rock size and roughness design iteration
Choose a roughness radio button (BB recommended) and a design rock size radio button (Isbash recommended). Fine-tune depth and rock size safety factor to get your desired flow with an even rock size. Every time you change any input value, the following iteration cycle happens: 1. Roughness is calculated from design rock size. 2. The requested roughness calculation is copied to input roughness. 3. Channel flow and required rock size are calculated. 4. Design rock size is adjusted. 5. Repeat until error in the design rock size is very small.
Basic calculator (no iteration)
Enter your desired roughness value. Ignore the design rock size input area.
