This module considers the bed-load transport and consists of a sediment trap, a sediment feed and a pipe system.
- The unit represents a bed-load transport with closed sediment circuit for the experimental flume.
- The unit includes a screen basket that act as sediment trap, to be inserted into the water tank below the outlet element of experimental flume.
- The unit also includes a pump with pipe system for transporting the water/ sand mixture from the trap to the sediment feed.
- The sediment feed is directly into the experimental section.
- The height of sediment feed above the flume bottom can be varied.
- The sediment is removed from the flume using screen on the second water tank.
- The experimental flume can be extended with the closed sediment circuit at any time.
