Abstract
    Research studies undertaken as part of the "Bed Dynamics" Task D of the EC funded COSINUS project are described. The studies undertaken involve the reformulation of sediment exchange equations, in situ field measurements of bed strength, laboratory settling column experiments, bed consolidation modelling, the development of a model of bed dynamics based on generalised Biot theory and the testing of an integrated erosion/entrainment model against laboratory experiments. The results of the various studies are synthesized and overall conclusions drawn.
