MODELLING OF A THREE-LAYER SEDIMENT TRANSPORT SYSTEM IN OSCILLATORY FLOW

Leszek M. Kaczmarek, Rafal Ostrowski

Abstract


An extension of the bedload model of Kaczmarek & Ostrowski (1996), taking account of suspended sediment, is proposed for the calculation of sediment transport features, such as the transport rate and thickness. The paper is focused on the transition region (named as a contact load layer) between the outer region (suspension layer) and the bedload layer within the proposed three-layer sediment transport model.
