Abstract: This technical note documents the sediment transport module and morphological module developed in the Boussinesq wave model, FUNWAVE-TVD. The sediment transport module is based on the quasi-steady flow assumption, which is believed to be a more appropriate model for predicting sediment transport in the swash zone and ship-wake-induced shoreline erosion. It includes the suspended sediment transport and bedload sediment transport. The morphological module calculates morphological evolution based on the sediment continuity equation. This technical note also provides model validations and an example for simulating ship-wake-induced sediment transport and morphological changes. This technical note is considered an interim product that will eventually be turned into a full technical report with more validation and verification work, in particular for the case of cohesive sediment transport and morphology change.
