Improvements in sediment retarding basin design are required to mitigate flood damage caused by bed load and wood debris outflow in lower river reaches. We used a scaled sediment retarding basin model to optimize our basin design, with the goal of improving sediment and wood debris transport and capture. Changes to the structural dimensions and elements of the sediment retarding basin were assessed under experimental debris flow conditions. The results obtained from the experiments and simulations were in good agreement regarding sediment flow and containment. The proposed one-dimensional model is useful for showing the effects of flow conditions within a sediment retarding basin on sediment transport. View Full-Text
