About the project

D1 RiverCare KDD 2016The aim of this project is to improve modelling of sediment management measures. We will focus on (1) restoration of hyperbolicity of the set of conservation equations in mixed sediment modelling, (2) accounting for dune sorting (i.e., lee face sorting and the dune-covered mobile armour) and dune geometry in mixed sediment modelling, and (3) modelling the effects of dredging and sediment augmentation measures.
