Introduction

- The transport of bed material particles by a flow of water can be in the form of bed-load and suspended load, depending on the size of the bed material particles and the flow conditions. The suspended load may also contain some wash load (usually, d<0.05mm), which is generally defined as that portion of the suspended load which is governed by the upstream supply rate and not by the composition and properties of the bed material.
- The sediment transport in a steady uniform current is assumed to be equal to the transport capacity defined as the quantity of sediment that can be carried by the flow without net erosion or deposition, given sufficient availability of bed material (no amour layer).
- Various types of formulae are available for predicting the bed-load and the suspended load transport (q). The formulae can be divided in five main groups as defined by the relevant hydraulic parameters:
- Fluid velocity
- Bed shear stress
- Probabilistic particle movement
- Bed form celerity
- Energetics (stream power)

m = 3 ~ 5

Three Modes of Particle Motions

- Three particle motions:
- Rolling and sliding motion or both:
- Saltation:
- Suspended particle motion:

Bed shear velocity just exceeds the critical value

Bed shear velocity further increases

Bed shear velocity exceeds the particle fall velocity

Bed-Load Transport Definition

Bagnold’s definition (1956): In the bed-load transport, the successive contacts of the particles with the bed are strictly limited by the effect of gravity, while the suspended-load transport is defined as that in which the excess weight of the particles is supported by random successions of upward impulses imported by turbulent eddies.

Einstein’s definition (1950): The bed-load transport is the transport if sediment particles in a thin layer of 2 particle diameters thick just above the bed by sliding, rolling, and sometimes by making jumps with a longitudinal distance of a few particle diameters.

Bed-load transport = the transport of particles by rolling, sliding, and saltating

Brigadier Ralph Alger Bagnold, OBE, FRS (3 April 1896 – 28 May 1990) was the founder and first commander of the British Army's Long Range Desert Group during World War II. Hans Albert Einstein (May 14, 1904 – July 26, 1973) was a professor at University of California, Berkeley. He was the second child, and the first son, of renowned physicist Albert Einstein (1879–1955) and his first wife, MilevaMarić (1875–1948).

Bed Material Suspension and Transport in Waves

Wave motion over an erodible sand bed can generate a sediment suspension with relatively large sediment concentration in the near-bed region in the case of non-breaking waves.

The key role of the breaking waves on the sediment concentration field in the coastal zone is obvious. The concentrations are maximum near the plunging point and decrease sharply on the both sides of the plunging area.

The bed material is usually coarsest in the most energetic area and finer inside the surf zone and outside the surf zone.

Wave-induced transport processes are related to the currents generated by waves. Net onshore transport is dominant in non-breaking wave conditions.

Net offshore transport is dominant in breaking wave conditions.

Fig. 8.1.1

Transport Processes in Breaking Waves (Surf Zone)

- Mechanisms:
- net backward (offshore) transport due to the generation of a net return flow (undertow) in the near-bed region in spilling and plunging breaking waves.
- net forward (onshore) transport by asymmetrical wave motion in weakly spilling breaking waves.
- longshore and offshore-directed transport due to the generation of large-scale circulation cells with longshore currents and offshore rip current.
- gravity-induced transport (bed load) in downsloping direction

Observations on natural beaches as well as in laboratory wave basins have confirmed that the longshore current is largely confined to the surf zone. This longshore current drives the shoreward movement of longshore sediment transport.

Computation of Sediment Transport Rates Induced by Waves

- Two Approaches:
- Sediment transport models representing both the instantaneous fluid velocity and concentration profile
- Sediment transport formulae similar to the current-related bed-load formulae.

1. Sediment Transport Models (Local 1-D)

This approach is useful when the phase difference between the instantaneous velocities and sediment concentrations at different elevations above the bed can not be neglected.

Dividing the instantaneous velocity (U) and concentration (C) into two parts:

and

The net total time-averaged total transport rate can be expressed as:

Not a !

qc

qw

+

= the current-related part + the wave-related part

Neglecting the horizontal convection, the horizontal diffusion and the vertical convection, the simplified concentration equation reads as:

w= fall velocity; ε= mixing coefficient

Sediment Transport Formulae

Since the major part of the sediment suspension in wave conditions is confined to a region close the bed (within 3 to 5 the ripple height or the sheet flow layer thickness), it seems reasonable to compute the wave-related sediment transport by a simple formula in analogy with the bed-load transport formulae applied in steady currents. A division between bed load and suspended load is only academic interest.

The existing formulae are generally based on empirical concepts, as used in steady uniform flow, using experimental data of oscillating flow in wave tanks, wave tunnels, etc.

Measures of sediment transport rates in waves:

qw,half= the sediment transport rate in half a period of an oscillatory flow

qw,net= the net sediment transport rate per wave cycle (period)

In general,

- Assumptions:
- No phase differences between the instantaneous bed shear stress (τb,w) and the velocity outside the boundary layer (U)
- No phase differences between instantaneous bed shear stresses and instantaneous transport rates

Other formulae

Bailard-Bagnold (1981) : the instantaneous total transport rate (bed-load+suspended load)

Sato-Horikawa (1986): the net transport rate based on wave tunnel experiments with regular asymmetric wave motion over a ripple sand bed

Van Rijn (1989): asymmetric regular swell waves, asymmetric irregular wind waves, mean (weak) current in presence of waves, and bound long waves

Bed Material Suspension and Transport in Combined Waves and Currents

- Currents in Coasts and Oceans:
- tidal current
- wind-induced currents
- wave-induced currents (especially wave breaking)
- vertical mixing due to bottom boundary turbulence
- These current will result in additional upward transport of particles yielding larger concentrations in the upper layer. The basic mechanism is the entrainment of particles by the stirring wave action and the transport of the particles by the current motion.
- The total sediment transport in combined waves and currents can be divided into:

= current-related transport rate + wave-related transport rate

qt,c: the transport of particles by the time-averaged current velocities

qt,w: the transport of particles by the oscillating fluid motions (orbital velocities

Issues in Sediment Transport in Combined Waves and Currents

- Breaking Waves
- Angle between wave and current:
- wave-current interaction: following current and oppose current
