Abstract: Extensive experiments conducted by the writers on fractional bed load transport rates are reported. These data as well as those available from other sources, covering wide range of flow conditions and sediment nonuniformity, have been analysed. Firstly, the semi-theoretical model proposed by Misri et al. (1984) is modified to evolve a method of bed load calculation and finally an empirical relationship is proposed incorporating the several parameters influencing the bed load transport of nonuniform sediments.
