Laboratory flume

A new laboratory flume for bedload transport experiments is available at the Institute of Mountain Risk Engineering.


Video 1: Bedload transport at 2.5% and 30 l/s over a geophone.


Video 2: Bedload transport at 5.0% and 30 l/s over a geophone.


Video 3: Impressions of bedload transport at 25% and shallow water depth.

Dimensions:

Length: 
6 m
Width:
0.25 m
Slope:
0-25 %
Discharge:
0-50 l/s 

Projects:

  • improoving bedload transport measurements at steep slopes
  • morpholpgy and and stability of bedforms at steep slopes
  • selective transport at steep slopes
