Abstract: Experimental results concerning saltation characteristics of gravel particles in a movable bed channel are analyzed by using video imaging techniques. Ensemble averaged values of saltation height, saltation length, and particle mean streamwise velocity are presented and compared with available experimental data. Ensemble averages of the dynamic friction coefficient, associated with particle collisions with the bed, are also estimated with the help of the video movies.
