A multi-dimensional numerical model for sediment transport based on the two-phase
flow formulation is developed. With closures of particle stresses and fluid-particle interaction,
the model is able to resolve processes in the concentrated region of sediment
transport and hence does not require conventional bedload/suspended load assumptions.
The numerical model is developed in three spatial dimensions. However, in this version,
the model is only validated for Reynolds-averaged two-dimensional vertical (2DV) formulation
(with the k − epsilon closure for carrier flow turbulence) for sheet flow in steady and
oscillatory flows. This numerical model is developed via the open-source CFD library of
solvers, OpenFOAM and the new solver is called twoPhaseEulerSedFoam.
