Mechanics of sediment transportation and alluvial stream problems

by R. J. Garde


This revised Second Edition features updated information on sediment transport through pipes and the principles of sediment transportation which form the basis for solving alluvial stream problems. Discusses such theoretical aspects as properties of sediments, incipient motion condition, flow regimes, resistance to flow, bed load transport, suspended load and total load transport. Also covers applied problems including sediment samplers and sampling, stable channels, alluvial streams and sediment control.
