A numerical k-epsilon model has been modified to account for the presence of submerged vegetation. The code has been successfully validated and run against tidal current measurement. The results looks promising. Especially the velocity in the near bed region is predicted with improved accuracy compared to only including the effect of the vegetation in the bed roughness parameter.
