The effect of sand movement on a cohesive substrate

Thompson, C.E.L. and Amos, C.L. (2004) The effect of sand movement on a cohesive substrate Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, 130, (11), pp. 1123-1125. (doi:10.1061/(ASCE)0733-9429(2004)130:11(1123)).

Record type: Article


Flume experiments investigated the effect of mobile sand on the erosion of cohesive beds. The fluid-induced stress alone was not enough to cause erosion, and sand motion as bed load was needed. Erosion rates and suspended sediment concentration were found to increase with increasing sand transport and to decrease with increasing median grain size. The erosion rate was found to be at a maximum during saltation, intermediate during creep, and lowest during suspension.
