Shields Parameter Calculator - Motion of Sediment in a Fluid Flow

Posted by Dinesh on

Calculate the initiation of motion of sediment in a fluid flow using simple shields parameter wastewater calculator online. The Shields parameter is a nondimensional unit or number used to calculate the initiation of motion of sediment in a fluid flow. It is also called as Shields criterion or Shields number.

Shields Parameter Calculation

Formula:

?× = ? / (?s - ?)gD

where,
? - is a dimensional shear stress
?s - is the density of the fluid
? - is the density of the sediment
g - is acceleration due to gravity
D - is a characteristic particle diameter of the sediment
