Abstract: Estuarine sedimentation is a subject of significant interest in the field of sedimentation. A sediment transport computation technique is developed for a tidal river with graded bed sediment facilitated by the application of relationships from the well-known Einstein's method and of these relationships assuming freezing of flow at the instant of computation. A flow model was used for evaluation of the intensity of shear. Results of computation are given for an ebb observation and two flood observations. The comparison of computed results with measurements indicate fair agreement in the coarser range of sediments.
