On the basis of the Wilcox  transitional k-ω turbulence model, we propose a new k-ω turbulence model for one-dimension vertical (1DV) oscillating bottom boundary layer in which a separation condition under a strong, adverse pressure gradient has been introduced and the diffusion and transition constants have been modified. This new turbulence model agrees better than the Wilcox original model with both a direct numerical simulation (DNS) of a pure oscillatory flow over a smooth bottom in the intermittently turbulent regime and with experimental data from Jensen et al.  , who attained the fully turbulent regime for pure oscillatory flows. The new turbulence model is also found to agree better than the original one with experimental data of an oscillatory flow with current over a rough bottom by Dohmen-Janssen  . In particular, the proposed model reproduces the secondary humps in the Reynolds stresses during the decelerating part of the wave cycle and the vertical phase lagging of the Reynolds stresses, two shortcomings of all previous modeling attempts. In addition, the model predicts suspension ejection events in the decelerating part of the wave cycle when it is coupled with a sediment concentration equation. Concentration measurements in the sheet flow layer give indication that these suspension ejection events do occur in practice.
