Abstract

A method to analyze bed load with image processing was developed. The motion of coarse spherical particles on a mobile bed entrained by a shallow turbulent flow down a steep channel was filmed with a high-speed camera. The water free surface and the particle positions were detected combining classical image processing algorithms. We developed a particle-tracking algorithm to calculate all particle trajectories and motion regimes, rolling or saltation. At constant slope, the contribution of the rolling particles to the solid discharge only slightly differed when the particle supply was increased. At a slope of 10%, it represented about 40%. In contrast, rolling became the major regime when the slope increased, at a slope of 15% it represented up to 80% of the total solid discharge.
