Document Type: Journal Paper


An analysis is made of some of the recent and more accepted sediment transport concepts as related to transport rates in flow systems. The analysis covers bed, suspended, and total load discharge computation procedures with descriptions of mathematical modeling techniques where applicable. The merits and the limitations of the various procedures are described. Finally, recommendations are made with respect to the use and application of the analysis for sediment transport prediction.
