SAND CONCENTRATION IN AN OSCILLATOR! FLOW

W.T. Bakker

Abstract


In this paper first a numerical model is described concerning the velocity distribution in an oscillatory flow, respectively without and with resultant current . From the momentaneous velocity gradients eddy viscosities are derived . Using the approach of VANONI [13 , a numerical model is given for the calculation of sediment concentration and suspended sediment transport. In order to give reliable results, the bed-load concentration should be known This will be investigated in the future; at the moment the model only provides qualitative results.

Keywords
