Recently, new velocity distribution equations have been developed by Chiu (1987, 1989) through the use of maximum entropy principle. A comparison will be made of the correction factor (β) corresponding to entropy and logarithmic velocity profiles when applied to the diffusion coefficient in computing the suspended solid concentration in sediment-laden flow.
