Project D

D) Sediment nourishment

This project aims at improving predictions of channel response to sediment management measures in sand-gravel rivers such as the Dutch Rhine, and to provide tools for effective design of nourishment and dredging measures. More specifically, the objective is:

  1. to assess techniques for efficient long-term modelling of morphodynamic changes;
  2. to assess the range of conditions for the which current numerical models are ill-posed;
  3. to develop a regularization method as well as a sound physically-based model to solve for ill-posed problems
