Hydrodynamic, Sediment, and Contaminant Transport Model (HSCTM2D)Entry ID: EPA_HSCTM2D
Abstract: The Hydrodynamic, Sediment, and Contaminant Transport Model (HSCTM2D) is a finite element modeling system for simulating two-dimensional, vertically-integrated, surface water flow (typically riverine or estuarine hydrodynamics), sediment transport, and contaminant transport.
The modeling system consists of two modules, one for hydrodynamic modeling (HYDRO2D) and the other for sediment and contaminant transport modeling (CS2D). One example problem is included. The HSCTM2D modeling system may be used to simulate both short term (less than 1 year) and long term scour and/or sedimentation rates and contaminant transport and fate in vertically well mixed bodies of water.
