Abstract:Physical model hydraulic experiments and model tests that use mobile sediments are performed in many laboratories across the world. This paper presents the main results from a set of guidelines on the physical modelling of sediment dynamics, which synthesised and documented procedure, practice and experience of partners in the EU collaborative project HYDRALAB-III. It does not attempt to cover all aspects of physical modelling, as these are already adequately covered by existing books, but draws together aspects in which the partners involved have a special expertise, particularly recent developments after most of the standard texts were published. Although many physical model mobile-bed tests are successfully completed, the need for improvements in data-basing is emphasised so that results are easier to re-use. The development and widespread adoption of appropriate standards for meta-data should be encouraged.
