Themes: (T) Sediment management and morphodynamics, (ST) Sediment transport mechanisms and modelling

Parallel session: 10A. Sediment - Transport

The sediment transport constitutes an up-to-date and challenging topic. The mathematical models are pushed forwards for including more physical characteristics which allow to obtain more accurate numerical predictions. In this work, the authors studied the influence of steep slopes over the sediment transport rate. For that purpose several one-dimensional experiments were carried out on tilting flume for where the solid and fluid discharge was varied. The transient evolution of the bed profile and also the solid discharge was recorded at several times. The influence of the slope is studied.
