The purpose of this research is to develop and validate a three-dimensional wave-current-sediment transport interaction formulation for various applications ranging from the ocean to the coastal zones, estuaries, and outflow areas. Regular and irregular waves, hydrostatic and non-hydrostatic flows are involved in this research. This research only focuses on the transport of suspended sediment in coastal zones, and estuaries. The new formulation is developed by using Generalized Lagrangian Mean method for Naviers-Stoke equations. A Finite Volume Method is applied to discretize this formulation on an unstructured mesh. The new wave-current-sediment transport interaction formulation then will be implemented in the DFlow-FM model.
