An estuarine two-dimensional vertical finite-element model of suspended sediment transport has been established by the sediment conservation equation. The primary objective of the present paper is to develop and verify a 2DV estuarine tidal flow and sediment transport model derived by the moving grid FEM. To this end, finite-element method has been used. An arbitrarily shaped quadrilateral element has been selected. This model has been compared with analytical solution. The tidal flow model was developed by Li and Shi. This represents a step towards developing a general 2DV estuarine model.
