Abstract: Mathematical models based on diffusion and/or diffusion convection equations have been widely applied to study sediment transport in suspension. Some of the studies were reported by C.C. Mei [1969], A.T. Hjelmfilt and C.W. Lenan, H.E. Jobson and W.W. Sayre [1970], H.Z. Sarikaya B.M. Sumer, Q.S. Zhang, B. Wilhelm and S. Walfram [1984], and Q.W. Han and M.M. He. In these models, however, different assumptions had to be made to treat the boundary conditions at the bed surface, even for the simplified case of uniform sediments. This paper presents a generalized model governed by a system of equations and boundary conditions which is capable of describing a variety of non-equilibrium transport of nonuniform sediments.
