Sediment Transport and Stream
Restoration

Deficient or excessive sediment transport based
on design discharge will result in erosion or
deposition, which can redirect flow and threaten
infrastructure and ecologic indices

Sediment transport prediction depends on grain
size, gradation, and bed topography

Uncertainty can be large

Excludes bank erosion and wash load

Use multiple relationships

Sediment Transport

Conclusions

Threshold conditions defined by Shields
criterion

Modes of sediment transport depend on
Shields criterion and grain size

Bedload and suspended load transport
treated separately

Load is modulated by bedforms
