River flows with high volume concentrations (20-50%) of silty sediments generally imply that the mixture has non-Newtonian properties. In this study, the rheological behaviour of mixtures with solids particles smaller than 0.1 mm was identified experimentally with viscosimeters. Characteristic flow parameters, such as energy losses and depths, were then determined in several examples for turbulent open channel flows.
