Evidence of micro-rotational cells in fluid flow and their possible implications for sediment transport

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper investigates the relationship between developing micro-rotational cells and rates of sediment transport in a medium-sized stream containing a sand bed. Analysis of the relationship between flow vectors at different time intervals allows for the quantification of this pressure force which operates either on or off the bed, depending on the direction of rotation. Results from 21 near-bed sediment traps and fluid speed data at those locations show a strong relationship between variability in pressure near the bed and sediment transport rate
