Numerical Modeling for Sand Desert Morphology and Forming Process in Fixed, Semi-Fixed and Free Desert Field
In this study, to conduct numerical simulation of desert physiognomy forming process in fixed, semi-fixed and free sand desert field by considering the sand flow process by wind, the numerical model based on the hydrodynamics and sand grains kinemics are proposed. For analyze the actual characteristic of sand movement phenomenon, the stream flow field and desert flow field are introduced and mathematical model for numerical analysis are established by considering the sand shape, size and mass in order to describe the fixed, semi-fixed and fully free sand desert physiographical process. Then according to the real fixed, semi-fixed and free sand flow field by coupling with stream flow field, several models are made and numerical simulations are conducted.
