Hjulsröm's Diagram
Hjulström's diagram, as modified by Sundborg, showing the critical current velocity required to move quartz grains on a plane bed at a water depth of 1m. The shaded area indicates the scatter of experimental data, and the increased width of this area in the finer grain sizes shows the effect of sediment cohesion and consolidation on the critical velocity required for sediment entrainment.
