Experiments were made to determine the relative effects on the friction factor of a flow of the suspended sediment load and the configurations which form on sand beds of streams. Results showed that the friction factor of a stream carrying suspended sediment is less than a comparable one without sediment. They also showed that the reduction of friction factor due to changes in bed configuration is much larger than that due to suspended sediment.
