Sediment Transport and Morphology Model

Study Area

Major Rivers of Bangladesh (Brahmaputra-Jamuna, Ganges-Padma, Upper Meghna to near Bhola)

Modelling Approach

  • 2D hydrodynamic Delft-3D models for sediment transport and morphological changes.
  • Analytical Approach (Universal River bank erosion co efficient by Hasegawa (1989), further modified by IWFM,BUET)

The Model Outputs

  • River erosion (bank and bed)
  • Sediment Transport Volume
