Grain Kinematics in Weak Linear Transport

  title={Grain Kinematics in Weak Linear Transport},
  author={F. Ballio and Alessio Radice},
Some preliminary results of measurements of one-dimensional sediment transport on a flat bed are presented. Image processing was applied to measure the time evolution of the areal concentration and the velocity of transported grains in a series of bed-load tests with values of the bed shear stress up to twice the threshold for incipient motion. The concentration and velocity data were used to compute the time evolution of the solid discharge per unit width. It was found, as expected, that the… CONTINUE READING
