RMA10 is a multi-dimensional (combining 1-D, 2-D either depth or laterally averaged, and 3-D elements) finite element numerical model written in FORTRAN-77. It is capable of steady or dynamic simulation of three dimensional hydrodynamics, salinity, and sediment transport. It utilizes an unstructured grid and uses a Galerkin based finite element numerical scheme. The WES Coastal & Hydraulics Laboratory version is based upon the work of Dr. Ian King of Resource Management Associates.

RMA10 Limitations

RMA10 assumes that the flow can be characterized as hydrostatic, i.e., vertical acceleration is neglected.

The sediment transport does not have interaction with the bed at the time of this writing.
