Sediment transport of coarse particles

Bedload transport: measurement and modelling

Graded suspension: measurement and modelling

Interactions between sediments of different size

Context In mountain and piedmont hydro-systems, gravel-bed rivers often transport large amounts of fine (silt-sized) sediments. The dynamics of such a sediment mixture is usually described as a simple superposition of fine sediment transport in suspension over a bed-load of gravel. However, the interaction between the two classes of sediment, such as hiding and exposure …
