This paper reports a numerical model that calculates the transport paths of individual granular particles over a natural water-worked gravel surface. Surface topography is measured using digital photogrammetry and incorporated into a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) scheme by the application of a porosity algorithm. The predicted hydraulics determine the forces acting on each particle enabling the particle trajectory to be solved by Langrangian transport equations. The methodology demonstrates the importance of including complex topography in the numerical scheme as topographically induced hydraulic acceleration and deceleration affect both the transport mechanism and subsequent trajectory of the particle
