This textbook discusses the fundamental principles of sediment
transport in the geophysical context of rivers and is intended as
both a course textbook and as a guide for the practical engineer.
We begin by describing phenomena such as bed load and suspension
transport from a classical perspective by applying the mean wall
shear stress approach while additionally incorporating a
statistical description of the inherent wall shear stress
fluctuations. Concepts from turbulent flow regime are introduced to
address the limitations of the classical approach to various
aspects of sediment transport, such as for example, the Newtonian
description of dense suspensions, or the description of the
self-organization processes for developing bed forms, or the
prediction of transport in very rough bed conditions. In this
context coherent structures and flow separation mechanisms are
developed as important new elements, which allow using topological
rules for the formulation of transport especially for developing
bed forms. Since the most up-to-date research findings in the field
are presented, this book serves as both a support in the
formulation of academic research programs, and as a practical text
for engineers seeking to simulate complex problems or special
aspects of sediment transport. This book will therefore be of
interest and of use to both students and to the professional
