In this study, a series of deposition tests have been performed using an annular flume in order to estimate depositional parameter of natural sediments. The sediment of Masan Port has been collected for deposition tests, and total 18 deposition tests have been carried out on different bed shear stress respectively but with the same initial concentration. As the results, the minimum bed shear stress , standard deviation and time scale parameter are found to be , 0.54 and 0.87 respectively. Through comparing with results from previous studies for other sediments, the results of this study are shown to be good enough to verify.
