In this study, annular flume experiments were carried out, using the sediment samples collected from the lower part of the inter-tidal zone at Xiaoyangkou, Jiangsu coast, China. The Ariathurai-Partheniades equation was used to determine the bed shear stress, by evaluating variations in the suspended sediment concentration within the water column. The derived relation between the bed shear stress and suspended sediment concentration shows that, at various stages of seabed erosion, suspended… CONTINUE READING
