INFLUENCE OF GRAIN SIZE ON LITTORAL DRIFT

Jose Castanho

Abstract


Influence of grain size in sediment transport depends on flow conditions For bed load transport a maximum probably exists for load discharge as a function of gram size The important parameter seems to be the ratio To/T between the threshold shear stress and the flow shear stress.

Keywords


littoral drift; grain size
