Abstract : The PDM or Particle Dynamics Method for simulation of clastic sediment motion has been used to study the motion of clastic sediment at the level of the individual particle. This technique can be used to assign properties to sediment beds like grain size and grain size distribution, grain shape, and so forth, and then to study the response of the system to specified external conditions such as levels of applied stress, slope angle of bed, or depth of water column.
