ABSTRACT

This paper examines the usage of mathematical modeling to establish a relationship between the sedimentation rate (the dependent variable) and velocity of flow, flow rate, trap efficiency and sediment load (independent variables). Reservoir and sedimentation data obtained gave insight into the sedimentation condition of the reservoir. Sediment deposition and distribution pattern of the reservoir were studied. Surveys were carried out using the Global Positioning System (GPS) to determine the sediment distribution pattern in the reservoir. A multiple regression model was developed to establish a relationship between the dependent and independent variables.


Keywords: regression modeling, sedimentation rate, reservoir
