Introduction & summary

This tool calculates the sedimentation of an access channel over a certain period of time. The location and length of the access channel needs to be defined under 'Generic data' (as a structure with type: Access channel). Using the geometrical input of the access channel the initial profile over the full length is calculated. Based on the theory of Van Rijn (Basics of channel deposition/siltation, 2013) and the input parameters the sediment transport due to tidal flow and waves outside of the channel is calculated.
