Sediment Transport Basics


Water resources professionals working in such topics as sediment basins, erosion control, and stream restoration must have knowledge of sediment transport. Sediment transport analysis is most often used to determine whether erosion or deposition will occur, the magnitude of this erosion or deposition, and the time and distance over which it will occur.

Join Forester University and prolific speaker Dr. David T. Williams for this live, educational, two-part webinar to bolster your understanding of sediment particle characteristics, sediment size distributions, and ramifications on sediment transport.

This course will introduce participants to the concept of the “double condition” that controls sediment transport, the equilibrium sediment condition, and the differences between bedload, bed material load, wash load, contact, saltation, and suspended sediment load. It will also present recommendations for which sediment transport function to use for various stream bed conditions.

Learning Objectives
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand the terminology used in sediment transport topics
  • Comprehend the various modes of sediment transport in a channel
  • Grasp the terminology used in describing sediment particles and particle distributions
  • Appreciate the “double condition” that controls sediment transport
  • Be aware of the various types of sediment transport models available
