Numerous data on bed profile have been investigated yet the analysis to predict bed profile formation especially related to sediment properties are still insufficient. Objectives of this study to determine significant bed elevation profile pattern formed based on the complexity of sediment properties especially related to sediment size. The investigation is made by carried out a computer simulation of straight channel pattern with the fixed bank and movable sand bed. The study included the various hydraulic characteristics with steady flow rates and sediment properties. The simulations focus on three different sediment sizes with other variables namely channel size, flow rate and bed slope were kept constant. Analysis has included the discussion on a significant difference of bed elevation profile formed along the lateral and longitudinal distance. As a conclusion, the sediment size alone does not significantly change the bed elevation profile as its only gave minor effect to the bed profile changes.
