Abstract

This paper first compares the performance of variants of each of the types of apparatus most generally used : a tumbling barrel, which rotates a charge of clasts in water, the clasts abrading one another as they move; and an abrasion tank, involving a circular flume in which impelled water carries particles across an abrading bed. Finally, consideration is given asq to the extent towhich these qnd previous experiments can be taken realistically to simulate natural river processes and the manner in which they can be related to down-channel or down-valley trends in alluvial materials
