The work is a theoretical study of the development of bottom instability in rivers and canals. Based on an analytical model of the load of sediment, taking into account the influence of slopes of the bottom surface, bottom pressure and shear stress on the movement of the bottom material and an analytical solution that allows to determine bottom tangential and normal stresses over the periodic bottom, the problem of determining the amplitude growth rate for growing bottom waves is formulated and solved . The obtained solution of the problem allows us to determine the characteristic time of the growth of the bottom wave, the growth rate of the bottom wave and its maximum amplitude, depending on the physical and particle size characteristics of the bottom material and the hydraulic parameters of the water flow. On the example of the development of a periodic sinusoidal bottom wave of low steepness, the verification of the solution obtained for the formulated problem is carried out. The obtained analytical solution to the problem allows us to determine the growth rate of the amplitude of the bottom wave from the current value of its amplitude. Comparison of the obtained solution with experimental data showed their good qualitative and quantitative agreement.
