Sediment transport in wadi systems. Part 3 - Sediment management structures and canal design. [email protected] Summary sediment management strategy. Limit the diversion of coarser sediments Transport fine sediments through canals to the fields
Model predictions include:
A disadvantage of settling basins in spate schemes is their high trap efficiency for fine sediments at low flows or when basins are empty.
To minimise the trap efficiency for fine sediments:
