At low D * the reduction in settling velocity due to either shape or roundness is much less. Moreover, at low D *, low roundness causes a greater decrease in settling velocity at low shape factor values than at high shape factor values. This appears to be due to the increased surface drag on the flatter grains. ### SIMPLIFIED SETTLING VELOCITY FORMULA FOR SEDIMENT PARTICLE
