Abstract: A new and simplified formula for predicting the settling velocity of natural sediment particles is developed. The formula proposes an explicit relationship between the particle Reynolds number and a dimensionless particle parameter. It is applicable to a wide range of Reynolds numbers from the Stokes flow to the turbulent regime. The proposed formula has the highest degree of prediction accuracy when compared with other published formulas. It also agrees well with the widely used diagrams and tables proposed by the U. S. Inter-Agency Committee (1957).
