Blocking of rivers and canals by sediment due to landslides or dumping of waste create problems of upstream flooding and drainage. Experiments are carried out in the present study on flushing of a sand pile resting on the dry bed in the middle of a flume, by sudden releases of surges. Based on dimensional analysis, the dimensionless relationship of sediment transport volume and surge characteristics is established.
