Flow and sediment matrix for the formation of midland point bars in sand bed channel / Duratul Ain Tholibon

Tholibon, Duratul Ain (2016) Flow and sediment matrix for the formation of midland point bars in sand bed channel / Duratul Ain Tholibon. In: The Doctoral Research Abstracts. IGS Biannual Publication, 10 (10). Institute of Graduate Studies, UiTM, Shah Alam.


A large number of studies, both theoretical and experimental have been devoted to understanding the physical mechanisms underlying the bar formation. Numerous data on bar formation have been accumulated yet the methods to predict bar geometry, especially bar height are still insufficient. This research aims to investigate the parameters that promote bar formation in term of bar height. Investigation was carried out on an erodible sand bed channel using a large-scale physical river model. Study have included various hydraulic and sediment characteristics with steady flow rates and sediment supply. There are four matrices of flow rate and channel width with other variables, namely grains size and bed slope which were kept constant. A relationship between dimensionless bar heights with the respective independent parameters has been established. Bar profile development was generated using Surfer, of which 3D elevation plots are given. Analysis has included the discussion on a significant difference of planform view for each experimental condition, trends in volume change along the channel, widening ratio and centreline bed elevation profile along the longitudinal distance…
