Abstract

Part II of this two part series is used to describe the sedimentology component of a design oriented simulation model called SEDIMOT II. In SEDIMOT II, the sediment yield is calculated using either J. R. Williams' techniques or a detachment-transport algorithm called SLOSS. Sediment yield is partitioned by assuming that the load rate is a power function of the flow rate. The particle size distribution of eroded sediment is adjusted for selective deposition by assuming that the largest particles are trapped first. The sedimentation effectiveness of three different types of sediment control structures can be evaluated in SEDIMOT II: detention ponds, grass filters, and porous check dams.
