Abstract

The energy given to the movement of sediment is a loss of energy from the water stream itself insofar as its flow rate is concerned. The movement of sediment is a complex function. One of the primary factors in the determination of the transport of sediment is to evaluate the sediment concentration distributions in channel flows. It is generally divided into suspended sediment concentration and the bed load. The determination of the suspended sediment concentration distribution requires very accurate computation of the velocity distribution in the channels. It has been observed that equations used at present very often lead to error in the prediction of the suspended sediment load. (see more in text)
