This subsection investigates the transport of sediments in flowing watercourses. When talking about sediment transport, we distinguish between suspended matter and bed-load transport.
Fundamentals of sediment transport
Starting conditions for bed-load transport.
Open-channel sediment transport
Observation of bed formation; visualisation of flow with contrast medium.
Sediment transport in river courses
Investigation of sediment migration with and without structures.
Separation in sedimentation tanks
Solid/liquid separation in a sedimentation tank, visualisation of flow conditions.
Formation of river courses
Compact experimental flume for modelling small river courses; inclination of the experimental flume adjustable.
