Improve predictive capability of the maximum transport capacity of sediment size mixtures in shallow flow
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. Improved predictions of sediment transport capacities will be determined from experimental data sets, taking into account the effect of the boundary layer thickness in relation to particle size.
