  • InfoWorks RS Problem Solver 4 – Sedimentation Movement

    Almost all watercourses are subject to the movement of sediment downstream over time. The underlying physical process is simple. Particles of material are picked up from the bed and banks of the watercourse at high rates of water flow and transported in suspension in the water. Larger and denser particles are picked up and suspended when the speed of flow is faster. When the rate of flow reduces ...
