Abstract
    A sand transport model for the Scheldt estuary, located in the Netherlands and Belgium, based on the hydrodynamic 3D Scaldis model is presented in this paper. The objective is to model only non-cohesive sediment transport. The model is validated using field measurements performed with a Delft bottle at different locations along the estuary. Asymmetry of the cross sectionally averaged flow velocity is used to understand the results of the sand model in terms of net sand transport direction.
