Paper Title:
Estimation of Bed Load Transport Rate Based on Grain Froude Similarity Considering the Existence of Sand Waves
  Abstract

It is very important for reservoir management to estimate the sedimentation amount deposited in a reservoir. Firstly, the formula for estimating the bed load transport rate in the bed of sand waves of prototype by model experiment was derived based on the similarity of grain Froude number; Secondly, several model experiments that the bed forms is similar with the prototype were carried, and the formula was verified. As a result, when the ratio of grain diameter in the prototype and model is great enough, and the bed forms in the model is similar with that in the prototype, a satisfactory result can be obtained by using the estimation formula for estimating the bed load transport rate of the prototype that sand waves occur in the bed.
