Fine Sediment In Open Water From Fundamentals To Modeling Book Excerpt:

Fine Sediment in Open Water is mainly written for professional engineers working in estuaries and coastal systems. It provides the basis for a fundamental understanding of the physical, biological and chemical processes governing the transport and fate of fine sediment in open water and explains how this understanding can steer engineering studies with numerical models. This is a unique treatment of processes at a variety of spatial and temporal scales, from the micro-scale (colloid scale) to system-wide scales, and from intra-tidal time periods to decades.Beginning with the processes governing the transport and fate of fine sediment in shallow open water, the first eight chapters are dedicated to the hydrodynamic, soil mechanics and biological processes which determine fine sediment concentrations in the water column, in/on the bed and the exchange of sediment between bed and water column. The next two chapters treat the net fluxes of fine sediment as a function of asymmetries in forcing and sediment properties. These fundamental processes form the basis for the subsequent chapters on modeling in which the governing equations are presented, and tools are provided to aggregate and parameterize the various processes elaborated in the first eight chapters. Further, any numerical model study should be based on a conceptual model, as illustrated in the final five chapters, which provide examples of numerical modeling studies on the transport and fate of fine sediment in a coastal sea, an estuary, a tidal river, a lake, and around and within a harbor basin.

A One dimensional Model of Cohesive Sediment Transport in Open Channels Book Excerpt:

Abstract: Fine-grained, cohesive sediments, widely existing in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, estuaries, etc., not only harmfully influence environment and ecosystems, but also cause problems to many types of structures, e.g., siltation in harbor entrance channels, docks and reservoirs. It has been recognized that when the fraction of fine-grained sediments is larger than about 10%, sediment mixtures consisting of cohesive and non-cohesive particles may exhibit cohesive properties, which gives a result that transport that transport processes of such mixtures are more complicated than those of coarse grained, non cohesive sediments. In an effort to understand and quantitatively predict the transport of sediment mixtures with cohesive and non-cohesive particles, a one-dimensional cohesive sediment transport model has been developed and integrated with the existing CCHE1D non-cohesive sediment transport model into a new sediment transport module, which calculates the concentrations of both cohesive and non-cohesive sediments using the same solver. Thereafter, the new sediment transport module has been incorporated with the hydrodynamic model into a newly enhanced CCHE1D model framework. A detailed mathematical description, numerical discretization, and solutions of the governing equations of the new sediment transport model are presented in this thesis. The cohesive sediment transport model simulates the deposition and erosion of cohesive sediments considering the effects of flocculation and consolidation. It relates the flocculation to the sediment size, sediment concentration, salinity, and turbulence intensity, and represents the consolidation of cohesive bed material through the temporal variation of dry bed density. The new sediment transport model takes into account the interactions between cohesive and non-cohesive sediments exceeds certain limits. The developed cohesive sediment transport model has been validated using two single-sized cohesive transport experiments conducted by Hayter (1983) and Dixit ((1982). The entire integrated sediment transport model has been tested by three real-world cases: the lower Fox River in Wisconsin, U.S., the Three Gorges Reservoir in China, and the Danjiangkou Reservoir in China. The model shows a good agreement between simulated results and measured data. After having been validated by a variety of laboratory and field cases, the new model can be applied to studies of real-world problems related to cohesive and non-cohesive sediments, with high efficiency and reliability.

An Introduction to Hydraulics of Fine Sediment Transport Book Excerpt:

This book presents observations on the phenomena of fine sediment transport and their explanations under process-related divisions such as flocculation, erosion, and deposition. The text is a compilation of the author's lecture notes from nearly four decades of teaching and guiding graduate students in civil and coastal engineering. Illustrations of fine sediment transport processes and their complexities given in the book are taken from field and laboratory-based observations by the author and his students, as well as numerous investigators. The wide-ranging composition of particles (of inorganic and organic matter), their universal presence and their complex interactions with hydraulic forces make this branch of science a difficult one to deal with in a single treatise. It is therefore essential to study fine sediment transport as an independent subject rather than cover it in no more than a single chapter as many texts on coarse sediment transport have done. Even though the entire coverage is “introductory”, the twelve chapters collectively include more material than what can be reasonably dealt with in a one semester, three-credit course. The book includes an extensive description of the components of fine-grained — especially cohesive — sediment transport. It covers the development of the subject in scientific and engineering applications mainly from the 1950s to its present state. Solved examples and chapter-end exercises are also included. This text is aimed at senior civil engineering undergraduates and graduate students who, in the normal course of their study, seldom come across the subject of fine sediment transport in their curricula. Interested students should have a basic understanding of the mechanics of fluid flow and open channel hydraulics.

River Sedimentation Book Excerpt:

Sediment dynamics in fluvial systems is of great ecological, economic and human-health-related significance worldwide. Appropriate management strategies are therefore needed to limit maintenance costs as well as minimize potential hazards to the aquatic and adjacent environments. Human intervention, ranging from nutrient/pollutant release to physical modifications, has a large impact on sediment quantity and quality and thus on river morphology as well as on ecological functioning. Truly understanding sediment dynamics requires as a consequence a multidisciplinary approach.River Sedimentation contains the peer-reviewed scientific contributions presented at the 13th International Symposium on River Sedimentation (ISRS 2016, Stuttgart, Germany, 19-22 September 2016), and includes recent accomplishments in theoretical developments, numerical modelling, experimental laboratory work, field investigations and monitoring as well as management methodologies.

River Flow 2016 Book Excerpt:

Understanding and being able to predict fluvial processes is one of the biggest challenges for hydraulics and environmental engineers, hydrologists and other scientists interested in preserving and restoring the diverse functions of rivers. The interactions among flow, turbulence, vegetation, macroinvertebrates and other organisms, as well as the transport and retention of particulate matter, have important consequences on the ecological health of rivers. Managing rivers in an ecologically friendly way is a major component of sustainable engineering design, maintenance and restoration of ecological habitats. To address these challenges, a major focus of River Flow 2016 was to highlight the latest advances in experimental, computational and theoretical approaches that can be used to deepen our understanding and capacity to predict flow and the associated fluid-driven ecological processes, anthropogenic influences, sediment transport and morphodynamic processes. River Flow 2016 was organized under the auspices of the Committee for Fluvial Hydraulics of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR). Since its first edition in 2002, the River Flow conference series has become the main international event focusing on river hydrodynamics, sediment transport, river engineering and restoration. Some of the highlights of the 8th International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics were to focus on inter-disciplinary research involving, among others, ecological and biological aspects relevant to river flows and processes and to emphasize broader themes dealing with river sustainability. River Flow 2016 (extended abstract book 854 pages + full paper CD-ROM 2436 pages) contains the contributions presented during the regular sessions covering the main conference themes and the special sessions focusing on specific hot topics of river flow research, and will be of interest to academics interested in hydraulics, hydrology and environmental engineering.
