Abstract

The formation of a natural pavement consisting of coarse materials in gravel streams is of great significance for both fluvial hydraulics and stream ecology. Insight into the characteristics of sediment transport and pavement evolution in gravel streams was gained by means of a physical model of a gravel stream in the Pacific Northwest. It is concluded that bedload transport in natural gravel streams can be simulated in the laboratory and that prototype behaviour can be predicted from laboratory data. The experiments also illustrate that pavement can form under conditions of continuous, equilibrium transport of all available sizes. (A)
