Abstract:
Sediment transport capacity for shallow overland flow was represented as a quadratic function of downslope distance using the assumption of a linear increase in overland flow discharge with downslope distance and an approximation to the Yalin equation for sediment transport capacity. The simplified equation applies to complex topography having uniform soil and management characteristics. It is useful in deriving closed-form solutions to the governing erosion equations for steady state conditions and reduces the computational time when numerical solutions are required.
