Experiments on sedimentary ripples in rotating cylinders have been considered as a convenient configuration for studying ripples. This system is simple and convenient to study sediment transport compared to the traditional channel experiments. In the present contribution, we conduct a small scale experiment as a “benchmark” of our numerical model. Processes of pattern formations have been produced and the results of the spiral arm properties are compared to the published experimental data.
