Simulations demonstrating interaction between coarse and fine sediment loads in rain-impacted flow

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Erosion in rain-impacted flow is associated with raindrop detachment followed by transport either by the combination of flow velocity and raindrop impact (raindrop-induced flow transport, RIFT) or the inherent capacity of the flow to transport detached material. Coarse particles tend to be transported by RIFT, while fine particles tend to be transported without any assistance from raindrop impact. Simulations were performed by modelling the uplift and downstream movement of both fine and coarse particles detached from the soil surface by individual raindrop impacts. The results indicate that the discharge of various sized sediments is highly dependent on local soil, rain and flow conditions
