Workshop: Part A--Introduction to Successful Sediment Transport Modeling
Monday, 24 June 2019
08:00 - 12:00
Tuscany # 12
Chair: Blair Greimann, USBR
This short course will introduce the basic principles of designing a successful sediment transport modeling analysis. Participants will be exposed to a wide range of applications of sediment transport modeling issues. The course will discuss the selection of the appropriate sediment transport model and steps necessary in the selection process: identification of the question you want to answer, identification of the process you want to simulate, understanding the limitations of various model types, and then the review of current models. The abilities and limitations of various sediment transport model types, such as sediment budgets, one-dimensional, and two-dimensional sediment transport models will be discussed. The importance of understanding model limitations will be emphasized as that is the key to properly designing and interpreting the analysis. This course is intended to be a pre-cursor to the course “Sediment Transport Modeling in 1D using HEC-RAS” and “Sediment Transport Modeling with SRH-2D”.
