Scope of suspended-load study—One phase of the study of fundamental problems of dynamics of stream-flow which confronts the Cooperative Laboratory of the Soil Conservation Service is the determination of the influence of suspended load upon flow-characteristics of a stream. Some of the aspects to be considered are: (a) The effect of suspended load on mean velocity, velocity-distribution, entrainment-force, competence, and capacity; and (b) variations of vertical distribution of suspended load with variations of change, variations of grain, and variations of material.
