Toelichting (Engels) A stability parameter for rock in bed protections under nonuniform stationary flow is derived. The influence of the mean flow velocity, turbulence, and mean acceleration of the flow are included explicitly in the parameter. The relatively new notion of explicitly incorporating the mean acceleration of the flow significantly improves the description of stone stability. The new stability parameter can be used in the design of granular bed protections using a numerical model for a large variety of flows. The coefficients in the stability parameter are determined by regarding the measured low-mobility entrainment rate of rock as a function of the stability parameter. Measurements of flow characteristics and stone entrainment of four different previous studies and many configurations (uniform flow, expansion, contraction, and sill) are used. These configurations have different relative contributions of mean flow, turbulence, and stationary acceleration. The coefficients in the parameter are fit to all data to obtain a formulation that is applicable to many configurations with nonuniform flow.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
