Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Lagrangian model for saltating particles in water, having a deterministic component (particle motion) and a stochastic component (collision and splash), is proposed. Numerical experiments are used to illustrate the influence of particle size on saltation characteristics. With the saltation model a general bedload transport relation, having predictive capabilities similar to those of commonly used empirical and semi-empirical relationships, is proposed. (Authors)
