CHRE1D - One Dimensional Model for Computational Hydraulics and River Engineering
Technical Description: CHRE1D is one dimensional (1D) finite-volume model for simulating flow hydraulics and sediment transport in steady and unsteady flow. The governing equations are the 1D mass and momentum conservation equations for sediment-laden flow and the sediment continuity equation for both bed load and suspended-load transport. The impact of vegetation on flow hydraulics and sediment transport is considered. The non-equilibrium sediment transport algorithm is adopted.
Capability: simulate flow hydraulics and sediment transport in natural rivers, such as storm surge, dam break flow, and deposition or erosion due to sediment transport.
