This study presents an integrated wave-mud-current interaction model to simulate energy dissipation of traveling waves over non-rigid muddy beds and mud mass transport in the presence of current. Assuming the water layer to be inviscid with a uniform current field, the governing Navier-Stokes equations are solved for fluid mud sub-layers. The constitutive equations of visco-plastic material are adopted for the fluid mud rheological behavior. The comparison between the wave attenuation and mud mass transport results of the numerical model and the laboratory data of An and Shibayama (1994) shows a good agreement.
