I was wondering if I could get a more detailed explanation than is given in the solver manual of how to properly set the parameters of the moveable be computations in the Mflow_02 solver. Specifically:
– How is the relative weight of bedload material calculated?
– What is the void ratio of the bed material? I see formulas online that give void ratio as, e=V_void/V_total. So is the proper interpretation of this parameter as the degree of soil compaction? How is this parameter utilized in the computations?
-Also, I am not sure what the morphological factor and the secondary flow coefficient and do not see a reference to these in the solver manual.
