Abstract
    3D simulations of cohesive sediment transport in the Loire estuary (France) have been carried out, using mainly the TELEMAC-3D software. In addition to hydrodynamics, three main features regarding sediment processes have been implemented into the code : turbulence damping, flocculation and entrainment of fluid mud. The results are in good agreement with the observations.
