Description :
This paper describes how the characteristics of the boundary layer have been tested in a long horizontal wind tunnel. Then the AA. present data from a series of measurements in the SWT where they have studied flow characteristics over saltation on sloping beds. They have studied, in particular, how dynamic bed roughness may relate to fluid shear stress and grain size.
