This paper presents an approach to incorporate time-dependent dune evolution in the determination of bed roughness coefficients applied in hydraulic models. Dune roughness is calculated by using the process-based dune evolution model of Paarlberg et al. (2009) and the empirical dune roughness predictor of Van Rijn (1984). The approach is illustrated by applying it to a river of simple geometry in the 1-D hydraulic model SOBEK for two different flood wave shapes. The new approach helps to reduce uncertainties in bed roughness coefficients of flow models, especially for river systems with strong variations in discharge with time
