Abstract:

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory CHL, has undertaken the development of the multi-module Adaptive Hydraulics ADH hydrodynamic, sediment, water quality and transport numerical code. As a natural progression of this development process, verification of ADH was performed to known solutions for the basic physics contained in the numerical code. This report documents verification and validation of the model performed by applying the model to several analytic and flume experiments. These tests were designed to ensure that the ADH-SW3 is solving the pertinent equations accurately.
