Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific


We experimentally tested the effect of a large range in helical flow intensity and sediment mobility on equilibrium transverse slopes, which resulted in a function for slope effects depending on bed state and sediment transport mode, that deviates from linear functions with sediment mobility in literature. Furthermore, we obtained basic relations for sorting patterns as a function of transverse slope and sediment mobility.
