Mechanics of Sediment Suspension in Well Mixed Estuaries

Adel Mostafa Kamel


The equations of conservation of volume, mass, and momentum, and the equation of kinetic energy of turbulence are formulated for the three dimensional flow of a mixture of water and sediment. Their solution gives the profiles of the concentration of suspended sediment, the coefficient of exchange of mass, the turbulent shear stress, and the longitudinal velocity of the flow.
