Abstract : This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) summarizes the development and initial testing of new sediment transport and modeling tools developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Institute for Water Resources (IWR), Hydrologic Engineering Center (HEC), to increase the functionality of numerical modeling of sediment transport within the USACE HEC River Analysis System (HEC-RAS) software package and to determine its applicability to Regional Sediment Management (RSM) challenges.
