Laboratory Simulation of Aeolian Sand Transport and Physical Modeling of Flow Around Dunes

  title={Laboratory Simulation of Aeolian Sand Transport and Physical Modeling of Flow Around Dunes},
  author={Bruce R. White},
This paper discusses the possibilities of laboratory simulation of large-scale flow around dunes, both with and without saltation, and the study of the physics of the small-scale particle motion occurring on a sand surface composed of like-moveable particles. Physics of the atmospheric boundary layer are presented in the context of laboratory applications. The governing equations of fluid and/or particle motion are discussed and analyzed for applications in laboratory testing. The most… CONTINUE READING
