Abstract: This is the fourth report in the series of four reports, toward the Verification, and Validation (V&V) of the Coastal Modeling System (CMS). This report contains details of a V&V study conducted to assess skills of the CMS sediment transport and morphology change for a wide range of problems encountered in coastal applications. The emphasis is on coastal inlets, navigation channels and adjacent beaches. This evaluation study began by considering simple idealized test cases for checking basic physics and computational algorithms implemented in the model. After these initial fundamental tests, the model was evaluated with several laboratory and field test cases. This report provides description of each test case, model setup, boundary conditions used in different numerical simulations, and assessment of modeling results. The report also includes major findings and provides guidance to users on how to setup and calibrate the model for practical applications of CMS-Flow for sediment transport and bed change modeling.
