Comprehensive coverage of the phenomena of sediment movement - from the origin and formation of sediment to its properties in pipelines. Nearly 40 years of theoretical development and practical experience has been incorporated in this book, which has won numerous awards as a scientific and technical publication in China. Now updated and fully translated into English, this volume is the first attempt in the field to unify the movement of sediment and boundary conditions. Going far beyond any book of its kind, it presents a synthetic analysis and thorough coverage of many schools of thought and provides practical survey of this discipline of the science. The authors introduce a synthesis of information gleaned from more than 800 papers spanning the fields of hydraulic engineering, mathematics, physics, geology, rheology and chemistry, giving the reader a profound understanding of the present status and direction of the industry's research efforts. The volume includes chapters dedicated to rate phenomena and topics such as hyperconcentrated flows, effect of sediment existence on water flow, large-scale hydraulic construction on sediment-laden streams, and specialized research not available outside of China.
