Abstract:This report elaborates and updates the supporting information on unpublished methods quoted in the book 'Dynamics of Estuarine Muds'(Whitehouse et al., 2000), which were described in Release 1.0 of the report. They include prediction methods for : bed shear-stresses on smooth (muddy) beds, (hindered) settling velocity of flocculated mud suspensions, and the concentration profile of suspended mud. Release 2.0 also includes an appendix describing a new method for predicting (unhindered) settling velocity and mass settling flux of flocculated mud suspensions developed in a recent company research project.
