This report describes the development of a video imaging system to measure floc size and settling velocity in the field and laboratory. In the field the system has been used on the River Tees, the Thames and Mersey Estuaries and from 10-1100ppm. In the laboratory the HR carousel was modified to allow a sample of the suspension to be withdrawn through the base of the carousel. A series of experiments were undertaken using the HR carousel to generate flocs, with concentration in the range 15-1400ppm and bed shear stresses in the range 0.04-0.40N/m2.
