The research had as its purpose a stochastic description of the movement of particles in a turbulent medium. Through this theoretical description, the movement of an ensemble of particles is investigated and an equation is formulated to describe the concentration of sediment as a function of time and space in a turbulent medium. Experimental investigations of the validity of the mathematical model were conducted in a 40 ft. research flume with rainfall simulation capability. The research had as a further objective the study of the effect of superimposed rainfall on the sediment diffusive capability of shallow open channel flow.
