Abstract

The main objective of this laboratory study is to quantify the influence of the storm direction and velocity on soil loss from sloping areas. Experiments were carried out using a soil flume adjustable to different slopes and a rainfall simulator. The simulated rainfall moved upstream and downstream, with different velocities, over the soil surface. Several bed slopes were used for carrying out the experiments. The soil used was collected at the right margin of the Mondego River in the city of Coimbra, Portugal
