Title: Analysis of velocity lag in sediment-laden open channel flows.

Abstract: Laboratory experiments have recently confirmed that the streamwise particle velocity is largely less than that of the fluid in sediment-laden flows. This velocity lag is investigated analytically in the present study based on the drag force exerting on a particle in the presence of other neighbors. The normalized drag force or the hindrance coefficient is found generally dependent on the particle concentration, particle Reynolds number, and specific gravity. The velocity lag is then derived by relating the hindrance coefficient to the shear stress distribution for uniform sediment-laden open channel flows. The analysis shows that the profile of the velocity lag, when normalized by the shear velocity, is associated with the shear Reynolds number, dimensionless particle diameter, and specific gravity. For the dilute condition, the velocity lag distribution varies only with the shear Reynolds number, and the lag can be ignored if the shear Reynolds number is less than unity. The theoretical predictions are comparable to limited experimental results.
