CE 716 EROSION AND SEDIMENTATION Pierre Y. Julien , Fall 2005 Assignment #1 Chapters 1,2, and 3 due September 7, 2005 Problem # 1 (20%) 1a. Consider a 6 m high container that is 0.5m x 0.5m at the base. A cubic meter of water at 10°C is added and sand is then poured from the surface until the volumetric concentration reaches 25%. If the sand is maintained in suspension through constant mixing, determine the following properties of the mixture in SI units: level of the free surface, volume of sediment, concentration in ppm, specific mass of the mixture and dry specific weight of the mixture. 1b. Stop mixing and wait until all the sediment settles at a dry specific weight of 93 pounds per cubic feet, determine the following properties of the deposit in SI units: height of the deposit, dry specific mass, specific weight of the deposit, void ratio, and volumetric concentration. Problem # 2 (15%) Use the method of dimensional analysis to determine the dimensionless parameters for the sediment discharge by weight Q s

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
