Field Value
Title Incipient transport of silt-sized sediments
Creator Nairn, Bruce James
Description Laboratory experiments were conducted to determine the influence of stream bed shear stress and water chemistry on the sediment transport rate for silt-sized particles near the critical threshold for motion. Experiments were conducted in two large recirculating laboratory flumes, 40 m and 12 m long, with a small sediment bed 40 cm long. The sediment transport rate was determined from the volume of sediment eroded from this sediment bed per unit time. The smaller flume was filled with...
