Three-Dimensional Shallow-Water Adaptive Hydraulics (ADH-SW3): Hydrodynamic Verification and Validation
Savant, Gaurav, 1979-; Berger, Rutherford C.; McAlpin, Tate O.; Trahan, Corey J.
Technical ReportAbstract: The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) has undertaken the development of the multi-module Adaptive Hydraulics (ADH) hydrodynamic, sediment, water quality and transport numerical code. As a natural progression of this development process, verification of ADH was performed to known solutions for the basic physics contained in the numerical code. This report documents verification and validation of the model performed by applying the model to several analytic and flume experiments. These tests were designed to ensure that the ADH-SW3 is solving the pertinent equations accurately.
