IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Numerical modelling of bedload sediment transport dynamics using a modified flux-wave approach
In this paper an efficient finite volume method is presented for simulation of bedload sediment transport within
the shallow water domains. The modelling system comprises the shallow water equations for the hydrodynamic
behaviour and the Exner equation for the morphodynamic variations. These two systems of equations are then
solved using a modified Godunov-type wave propagation method based on the coupled strategy which solves
the entire coupled system in a fully hyperbolic conservative form. To maintain the hyperbolicity of the system, a
well-known Grass-type bedload transport model is employed. First, the model is used to simulate parabolic
sediment layer transportation over a flat bed. Next, the propagation of a sediment hump with a defined subcritical
initial condition is considered. It will be shown that the proposed model provides a very good agreement with
analytical or reference solutions even for the Courant number relatively close to 1 for the given test cases.
