By the end of the course the student is expected to:
1) have a fundamental information for nature of sediment problems, origin and properties of sediment particles, fall velocity concept.
2) have knowledge on suspended sediment, bed load and total load transport in streams.
3) have knowledge on bed form mechanics and resistance to flow.
Introduction, sediment transport phenomena in free surface flows, scour criteria, bed load, suspension, and total load theories, bedform mechanics, resistance laws, special topics in sediment transport. (F)
This course is designed to give a general idea about sediment engineering.
