  author={Jos{\'e} Eduardo Alamy Filho and Harry Edmar Schulz and Andr{\'e} Luiz Andrade Sim{\~o}es},
The Immerse Boundary Method (IBM) was used to evaluate the sediment transport over deformable beds. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) procedures were used for the mathematical treatment of turbulence, and the advection-diffusion equation was used to calculate sediment concentration. The Finite Differences Method with staggered grid was applied for the numerical solution of the governing equations (filtered Navier-Stokes, Continuity and advection-diffusion equations). Spatial derivatives were… CONTINUE READING
