This study is aimed at developing a simple but reliable sediment discharge relation that could be free from the difficulties associated with the use of existing ones. It treats total bed material discharge instead of separate estimates of suspended and bed transport because most hydraulic problems associated with sediment transport can be more effectively solved by considering total sediment discharge, and because of the uncertainties in finding when or where the sediments are being transported as suspended, or load, especially in the presence of bed forms
