Bedload transport processes in a braided gravel bed river model

YOUNG, W. J.
DAVIES, T. R. H.

Description :
A 1:50 scale hydraulic model was designed, based on Froude number similarity and using hydrological and sediment data from a small braided gravel-bed river (the North Branch of the Ashburton River, Canterbury, New Zealand). The qualitative results of the experiments using steady flows and unsteady flows reveal the nature of bedload transport (BLT) processes in braided rivers, particularly regarding variability of BLT in braided rivers.
