Numerical modeling of re-suspension and transport of fine sediments in coastal waters

Karadoğan, Erol
In this thesis, the theory of three dimensional numerical modeling of transport and re-suspension of fine sediments is studied and a computer program is develped for simulation of the three dimensional suspended sediment transport. The computer program solves the three dimensional advection-diffusion equation simultaneously with a computer program prepared earlier for the simulation of three dimensional current systems. This computer program computes the velocity vectors, eddy viscosities and water surface elavations which are used as inputs by the program of fine sediment transport. The model is applied to Bay of Izmir for different wind conditions.
