Abstract

A wind tunnel study under wind-driven rains was conducted at Ghent University, Belgium, to determine the combined effect of rain and wind on the rainsplash transport process. Transport rates were measured by trapping the splashed particles at set distances in the upslope and downslope directions, respectively, for windward and leeward slopes. Rainsplash transport under wind-driven rains was adequately described by relating the transport rate to the rain impact pressure and wind shear velocity by log-linear regression technique. The travel distance is found to be 3 times greater than the path of a typical saltating sand grain
