Evaluation of Sediment Transport In Kirkuk Irrigation Channel
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2007, Volume 25, Issue 3, Pages 349-357
AbstractIn this research, the sediments transport and how to compute their amount
have been studied in Kirkuk irrigation channel. Empirical methods for
computing sediments discharge in the channel have been discussed
emphasizing on six methods (Blench, Graf, Laursen, Yang, Inglis- Lasey and
Engelurd–Hansen). The applications of these methods required the selection
of (24) sections along the channel in order to measure the hydraulic
parameters of the different cross sections in addition to the slope along
the channel. Samples of water sediments have been taken at each section in
addition to bed samples.
The research introduces an equation for computing sediment load in
Kirkuk irrigation channel depending on the data of (14) sections in the
channel using statistic- MS program.
The validity of this equation has been verified with the application to
the remaining (10) sections data in the channel and the results are very close
to the field measurements .
