Abstract : In the design of multipurpose, flood-control, navigation, channel rectification, and miscellaneous hydraulic structures projects a problem of sedimentation is frequently posed. In order to determine the extent to which this may be detrimental to project efficiency, or to judge remedial measures or allowances that must be made, it is of immediate interest to have some knowledge as to the rate or magnitude of occurrence of sedimentation. A mathematical procedure offers a practical and reasonably accurate resolution of these questions. This is the objective of this report. (Author)
