Sediment behaviour in grass filter strips


Sediment behaviour in grass filter strips



Water Science and Technology 39(9): 129-136

Sediment transport was studied in non-submerged overland flow over grass in a laboratory. Artificial turf (astro-turf) was used to simulate natural grass and no infiltration was allowed at this stage of the investigation. Experiments were conducted for different grass densities, flow rates, sediment inflows, and sediment types. Concentration of sediment in runoff decreased exponentially with distance and asymptotically reached a constant value.
