Abstract

2 Prediction of suspended fine-sediment concentration and siltation at Kapar coastal region in Malaysia J. Tu\ A.K. Ishak^, H. Hassan^ * Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation (ANSTO) Menai, NSW, Australia Malaysian Institute for Nuclear Technology Research (MINT) Bangi, Kajang, Malaysia *TNB Research Sdn. Bhd. Jalan Air Hit am, Kajang, Malaysia Abstract Field studies of fine-sediment transport were carried out at Kapar coastal region, on the west coast of Malaysia Peninsula, during 1999 and 2000, in particular, near the Kapar power station construction where serious siltation was found. The work was aimed at the development of predictive models of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) and sedimentation rate in the vicinity of the Kapar power station construction. This paper reports the model development and its prediction of siltation in this particular region. A new approach is proposed to predicting sediment deposition rate (siltation) from a time derivative
