Morphodynamic modeling and causes of closure of My A inlet

By Nghiem Tien Lam, Le Dinh Thanh, Vu Minh Cat and Vu Thi Thu Thuy

Abstract

Morphodynamics and sediment transport of the My A inlet in the low flow season are modeled using Delft3D. The simulation model takes into account the forcing of waves, tides and river flows. Model outputs of sediment transport and morphological changes of allow analysing the mechanism and cause of inlet closure. The analysis shows that longshore sediment is accreted on the northern side of the inlet both on the ebb tidal delta and along the north coast, but onshore sediment transport by wave reworking is the main process to close the inlet
