Kinematic wave model of bed profiles in alluvial channels
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-21)
A mathematical model, based on the kinematic wave (KW) theory, is developed for describing the evolution and movement of bed profiles in alluvial channels. The model employs a functional relation between sediment transport ...
Kinematic wave model for transient bed profiles in alluvial channels under nonequilibrium conditions
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-12-27)
Transient bed profiles in alluvial channels are generally modeled using diffusion (or dynamic) waves and assuming equilibrium between detachment and deposition rates. Equilibrium sediment transport can be considerably ...
