Abstract

A 3D numerical model named NEWTANK is employed to investigate the flow motion and sediment transport in grouped spur dikes system. This model is based on the Navier-Stokes equations, adopting the Volume of Fluid (VOF) method to track the free surface motion, while the solid is described by using the Porous Media Method (PMM). The Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is applied to capture turbulence. In sediment calculation parts, the suspended load and bedload are treated separately but combined together to update bed variation eventually. The finite difference form and Two-step Projection Method are employed in the process of discretizing the governing equation. Several carefully selected flume experiments are introduced to verify this model's reliability before its application on the simulation of grouped spur dike case, and detailed flow characteristics and sediment properties are analyzed afterwards.
