Controlling the distribution of water and sediment at river bifurcations is one of the main challenges in river engineering and management. This distribution affects the stability of river bifurcations as well as the distribution of flooding risk, navigability and environmental conditions. The governing factors are the hydrodynamics of the two...

In this study, an improved error metric for morphodynamic models is introduced. Current error metrics, like the classical (Root) Mean Squared Error (RMSE), assume that predictions can be properly validated against observations by regarding the point-wise difference in bed level. This analysis inherently has the problem that phase differences of...

River bed degradation is sometimes counteracted with nourishment of sediment material. Numerical models — which include Hirano’s sediment continuity model for mixed-size sediment — can be used to predict the transport of different sediment fractions (the waves due to spatial variations in the grain size distribution of the bed material are here...

In this study a modelling approach was investigated that takes into account the effect of short wave grouping on long wave motions, calculating sediment transport and morphology with multiple fractions and a layered bed stratigraphy. After extensive testing and validating this model using data collected in a wave flume in Hannover this model was...
