Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling


In this paper, the formation process of a sand terrace in front of river mouth is simulated numerically by means of the finite element method. The two-step explicit scheme is applied as a method for the time integration procedure. As the numerical examples, a simple laterally wide basen is solved.
