Sediment suspension modeling by smoothed particle hydrodynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method is applied to simulate oscillatory flow, sediment suspension, deposition, and mobile bed mechanics. The sediment suspension is simulated with concentration model. The result shows that it can reproduce the phase lag between stream velocity and sediment concentration, which was verified by experiment data. The SPH method is promising and should be able to be used for coastal processes.
