This paper is written to mark the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Hans Albert Einstein (1904–1973). It casts his career as that of the archetypal researcher protagonist determined to master intellectually the way water flows and conveys alluvial sediment in rivers. In that effort, Einstein personified the mix of success and frustration experienced by many researchers who have attempted to formulate the complicated behavior of alluvial rivers in terms of mechanically based equations. His… 
Principles of Bedload Transport of Non-cohesive Sediment in Open-Channels
This text addresses the particular case of motion and causes of motion of granular material as bedload in the fluvial domain. The aim is to perform and overview of key concepts, main achievements and
Mathematical modelling of shallow flows: Closure models drawn from grain-scale mechanics of sediment transport and flow hydrodynamicsThis paper is one of a selection of papers in this Special Issue in honour of Professor M. Selim Yalin (1925–2007).
Mathematical modelling of river processes is, nowadays, a key element in river engineering and planning. River modelling tools should rest on conceptual models drawn from mechanics of sediment

Reanalysis and Correction of Bed-Load Relation of Meyer-Peter and Müller Using Their Own Database
The pioneering predictor of fluvial bed-load transport rate proposed by Meyer-Peter and Muller in 1948 is still extensively used in basic research and engineering applications. A review of the basis
Entrainment and motion of coarse particles in a shallow water stream down a steep slope
We investigate the entrainment, deposition and motion of coarse spherical particles within a turbulent shallow water stream down a steep slope. This is an idealization of bed-load transport in
Risk analysis of reservoir sedimentation under non‐stationary flows
Reservoir sustainability is strongly impacted by the reservoir sedimentation processes. Most of the substantial sedimentation processes occur in non‐stationary flows such as in the case of flash
Mixing and Transport
The papers reviewed herein address surface water flow phenomena and fluid mechanics relating to the mixing and transport of pollutants in the environment. It is recognized that mixing and transport
Hydrologic and Hydraulic Research in the Soil Conservation Service
The U. S. Congress created the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) in 1935 in legislation that declared “the wastage of soil and moisture resources on farm, grazing, and forest lands of the Nation,
A study of the spatio-temporal behaviour of bed load transport rate fluctuations
This thesis addresses the problem of a statistical description of the transport of sediment as bed load. It highlights the role of fluctuations arising during the transport process, and their impact
Web-based geospatial platform for the analysis and forecasting of sedimentation at culverts
TLDR
A new, innovative solution for addressing culvert sedimentation using a data-driven approach that enables the identification of culverted sedimentation drivers and quantifies the relationships between drivers and culverts severity, making use of an extensive set of multi-disciplinary data.
