Abstract: Two- and three-dimensional numerical modeling systems have been developed to address questions of open channel flow and sedimentation for the Corps of Engineers. These systems are complete, in that they provide for all activities in a model study from map digitization through modeling to analysis and display of results. They are designed so that the modeler need only be expert in the physical processes, not in computer techniques. Examples of use demonstrate the versatility of the approach.
