Sediment Trap
  • Observation of bed-load transport along the flume bottom.
  • Rolling and saltation bed-load transport.
  • Formation and migration of ripples and dunes.
  • Understanding of fluvial obstacle marks using the Slice gate module.
  • Sediment trap made of stainless steel

This module represents a bed-load transport in open channels.

  • This module allows experiments on bed-load transport in the experimental flume.
  • The sediment trap is permanently mounted between the experimental section and the outlet element of the experimental flume.
  • The sediment feed is manual using a bucket filled with sand.
  • The sediment feeder is available as an option to provide even sediment feed using a vibrating conveyor.
