SedFOAM is a two-phase flow solver built upon consecutive laws, based on the CFD toolbox OpenFOAM. The sediment body is considered as a continuum phase. The intergranular and fluid stresses are modeled with the dense granular flow rheology and the k–ϵ turbulent model, respectively. The model setup will be based on an experimental study on the scour due to a water jet subjected to lateral confinement. A comparison study will be made based on precise experimental data by Martino et al. (2019) that will show the advantages and defaults of SedFoam. The objective of this work is to reproduce the digging and filling cycle of the scour formation due to the water jet in a confined canal. The first numerical results show that it needs to use 3D numerical simulations because of the fluctuation of the jet direction induced by the presence of a driven flow cavity.
