The equations of motion for a sediment grain near a noncohesive bed and those for the local fluid flow are combined to produce a set of differential equations that can be solved numerically to describe the trajectory of a saltating grain as a function of time. The lift coefficient is set based on a reanalysis of data produced by Chepil, and the other parameters of the problem are set using standard fluid mechanical relationships; the initial velocity and position are specified with a separate… CONTINUE READING
