About this book

This book documents the development and validation of a novel three-dimensional sediment transport and morphological numerical model suitable for coastal regions. It discusses the modelling of both suspended and bed-load transport of non-cohesive sediment, important aspects of the morphological updating scheme, and approaches used to model the three-dimensional effects of waves on coastal hydrodynamics.

It also presents the results of several validation studies and demonstrates the performance of the model in several theoretical, laboratory, and full scale test cases. The author critically analyses the application of the model and acceleration techniques to the complex and dynamic entrance to Willapa Bay, Washington, USA.
