Modeling of settling and flocculation of fine sediments in still water / by B.G. Krishnappan.: En13-5/89-143E-PDF

"A numerical model to predict settling behaviour of fine sediment mixtures in a stagnant water column is described. Both single grain settling mode and the floc settling mode are considered. The single grain settling mode is analyzed by solving the unsteady, one-dimensional diffusion-advection equation numerically and the floc settling mode is examined by solving a coagulation equation expressed as a discrete equation in logarithmic radius space considering the differential settling as the only collision mechanism"--Abstract.
