Sediment Transport Modeling

The Sediment Transport Module of EFDC_Explorer10 can be applied to study the transport and fate of multiple size classes of cohesive and non-cohesive suspended sediment including bed deposition and resuspension and non-cohesive bedload transport. Three comprehensive training guides covering the Sediment Transport Module of EFDC_Explorer10 can be accessed from the Sediment Transport Modeling Index:

The first guide is to describe various settings of Sediment Transport Module. The second guide is a Step-by-Step training guide for an application using 3D Coastal Sediment Model based on a case study in the Tra_Khuc Estuary, Viet Nam. The last guide is about how to set up a EFDC sediment model based on Yen&Lee experiment which investigates bed deformation and sediment sorting in a channel bend.
