Field Data Collection and Analysis of Hyperconcentrations and Mud Flows

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling


Hyperconcentrated flows and mud flows exhibit properties quite dissimilar from Newtonian fluids. In order to further our understanding of such phenomena, field data have been collected both nationally and internationally in recent years. It is the purpose of this paper to describe field data collection and analysis that should be conducted to further our understanding of these type of flow phenomena. Rheological data can be input to numerical mud flow models which can be used to simulate mud flows and enhance prediction and hazard delineation. This paper is part of an ongoing investigation by the ASCE Task Committee on Laboratory and Field Sediment Data Accuracy and Availability.
