Dupiro, initially developed at the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions EPFL by Jérôme Dubois, simulates sediment transport and evolution of bed. The current version implements the bed-load transport formula of Smarrt & Jäggi to define the erosion and deposition zones. The numerical model solves the equations of energy, momentum and continuity to ensure the transition between torrential and fluvial regime.

DuPiro is especially useful to model sediment transport, assess bank stability and forecast erosion and deposition.
