COURLIS is a 1D sedimentology module coupled with MASCARET, 1D hydraulic code of the TELEMAC-MASCARET open source system. The code has been developed for more than 10 years, mainly for suspension sediment transport. Recently, the need of a 1D bedload code has been identified to model the long term evolution of rivers and reservoirs (several decades). New numerical schemes were implemented, some improvements were done in the geometry evolution algorithms. In terms of performance and robustness, the best scheme implemented is a finite volume upwind/downwind scheme. Several solutions are implemented to reduce calculation time. This new version of COURLIS for bedload transport was validated successfully on test-cases (Soni and Newton experiments). A real case has been simulated during an 11 year period. The calculation time is very similar to those obtained with codes tested in the benchmark and the results are in a good agreement with measurements and other code results. COURLIS (suspension and bedload transport) will be released in the next version of the TELEMAC-MASCARET open source system and so, it will be freely available for sedimentology community. Further developments are planned in 2018.
