Sediment Sources, Characteristics and Movement

11th June 2024

     

Font size: - +

 

Date: 9 July 2024

Location: Online

ediment transport computations for open channels are frequently required in engineering projects for planning or design. Computations are greatly facilitated by spreadsheets or software packages (e.g., HEC-RAS) with built-in sediment transport algorithms, but the underlying science is complex and often intimidating. This webinar will provide an introduction or quick review of the most fundamental aspects of sediment transport used by engineers and scientists. The principles discussed here will facilitate interpretation of sediment monitoring data and selection of sediment transport formulas. Normal ranges of temporal and spatial variation in sediment properties and loads and the limitations of the current state of science will be emphasized.

Primary Discussion Topics

Sediment characteristics

Sizes - classification, measurement, statistical distributions

Shape, specific weight, friction angle, cohesion

Sources of sediment found in stream channels

Sediment transport modes

Size effects on transport

Cohesive sediment transport

Computing sediment loads or concentrations

Selection of sediment transport relations for bed material concentration and discharge rate

Types of sediment transport models

Sediment transport through vegetation
