Fractional transport of bed-material load in sand-bed channels
This dissertation presents a new method for predicting fractional transport rates of bedmaterial load in sand-bed channels. The proposed method is developed based on the concept of the transport capacity fraction (TCF) approach. The bed-material concentration for a given size fraction is obtained by weighting the bed-material concentration, C1, with a transport capacity distribution function, Pci. The procedure and a detailed example problem showing the use of the proposed method are provided. Two transport capacity distribution functions are developed. The first function is in terms of relative ...
