The full three dimensional numerical simulation of the evolution of a barchanoid dune. ParaView was used to visualize the numerical results. The suspension load was visualize with a iso volume filter.
Simulation of a fluvial obstacle mark in front rectangular obstacle. Validation with an appropriate flume experiment shows very good agreement with field data.
