Abstract:

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory CHL has developed the multi-module Adaptive Hydraulics ADH hydrodynamic, sediment, water quality and transport model. As a natural progression of this development process, verification of ADH was performed to known solutions for the basic physics contained in the numerical model. This report documents a validation of the model performed by applying the three-dimensional shallow water module ADH-SW3 to Galveston Bay and comparing results to field observations. The validation exercise shows good agreement with the field for water surface elevations, velocities, and salinity.
