A CRITICAL REVIEW OF AVAILABLE DATA FOR CALIBRATION AND/OR VERIFICATION OF SEDIMENT TRANSPORT MODELS

Julio A. Zyserman

Abstract


A survey and a critical review of existing sediment transport data in waves and/or currents has been performed. Special emphasis has been given to the applicability of the data sets for the calibration and/or verification of sediment transport models. Only data sets dealing with non-cohesive sediment have been considered in this review. The eventual need for further experimental research is discussed under the light of the results from the present study.

Keywords
