An experimental study of particle-driven gravity currents on steep slopes with entrainment of particles

Abstract

Abstract. Results of laboratory experiments are presented in which a finite suspension of sawdust particles was released instantaneously into a rectangular channel immersed in a water tank. Two kinds of gravity currents were studied: currents with or without entrainment of particles from the bed. Experiments were repeated for two slopes: 30 and 45. We… (More)
