End Date: Mar 31, 2012
Experimental studies will be conducted in laboratory channels to determine the mode and rate of non-cohesive granular material in relation to differences in material characteristics and hydraulic flow regimes. Experiments will be complemented with analytical approaches using continuity and momentum equations for fluids and materials. Improved predictions of sediment transport capacities will be determined from experimental data sets.
