Technical note for sediment transport rate

Analysis of delta flume data and calculations

More Info


Data analysis of Delta flume observations and calculationsThe objective of the present study is to analyse the measurement data of profiles and velocity moments, to derive the measured cross-shore sediment transport rates from the profile records and to compare the observed transport rates with the results from several existing prediction models of cross-shore sediment transport. This report is a summary of preliminary analysis and calculations of 2 tests with test number 2A and 2B. The report includes profile analysis, the derivation of measured transport rates, the computations of cross-shore transport rate by Bailard's formula and t h e comparison between the measured and the computed results.
