Implementation of multi-class population balance equation based flocculation model in TELEMAC MASCARET system is an internal project in collaboration with KU Leuven, Kyungpook National University (South Korea), and the developers team at EDF R&D (France). TELEMAC-MASCARET is a suite of sophisticated modelling tools used in the field of hydrodynamic and sediment transport modelling in coastal, estuarine and riverine systems. It is also one of the main modelling platform used in the Flanders Hydraulics Research for research and engineering projects. The general objective of this internal project is to improve the functionality of modelling flocculation processes in the TELEMAC system by incorporating more advanced flocculation models based on two-class population balance equations (2CPBEs) (Lee et al., 2011) and three-class population balance equations (3CPBEs) (Shen et al., 2018a, 2018b) developed at KU Leuven, and make it available as a useful tool for future research and studies. Another important task in this project is to investigate the influence of flocculation on large-scale sediment transport, which will be elaborated in a separate validation report. This report focuses on the code development of the MCPBE flocculation models and the procedures of adding a new module in TELEMAC-MASCARET.
