Sediments

Modelling of sediment transport and morphology

Sediment modelling (1D) is performed with MIKE 11 - the world-known predecessor of MIKE HYDRO River. MIKE 11 is included in the MIKE HYDRO River package.

It offers a variety of options for modelling of sediment transport dynamics and morphological changes in the river bed. Transport models are available for fine, cohesive sediments, such as clay and silt, non-cohesive sediments, such as sand, gravel and boulders, as well as mixed sediments.

Typical sediment transport applications include:

  • Assessments of sediment dynamics in larger river systems
  • Long-term morphology
  • Optimisation of dredging maintenance, for example for navigation
  • Sediment management in rivers and reservoirs
  • River restoration projects

BENEFITS

  • Long-term simulations of morphological changes in rivers
  • Rapid assessment of sediment dynamics in larger river systems
  • Mixed sediments analysis, including morphological changes
