Yellow River is very much important to China, but it has long faced alot of problems. From the viewpoint of disaster prevention and reduction, the hydrodynamic properties of Lower Yellow River Channel were studied. The hydrodynamic factors to influence the Lower Yellow River Channel were investigated to find their relations. Sediment movements of Lower Yellow River Channel were explored on the basis of relation between fluid flow and sediment transportation to predict evolutional process of Lower Yellow River Channel to give suggestion for permanently harnessing Lower Yellow River. The problem of beach area of Lower Yellow River is a comprehensive balance among society, economy, environment and natural resources rather than an only physical problem, and suggestions were proposed to solve this problem from the view of sustainable development. This paper also finds that it is necessary to deal with Yellow River together with Huaihe River.

Key words: channel property, channel treatment, lower beach area, Lower Yellow River
