Mathematical model is one of the means to study of turbulent wave boundary layer. The paper analysis of the existing model, adopt a more reasonable boundary condition to establish a improved mathematical model of 1DV turbulent wave boundary layer using k-ε model. The paper recommends brief flow simulation and mainly introduced the simulation of the sediment concentration. The paper use the eddy-viscosity value which calculation by the mathematical model and the model of You Zaijin on time-invariant eddy-viscosity into the relationship about sediment diffusion coefficient and eddy-viscosity to calculate the sediment concentration. The calculation results turns out the way that use the eddy-viscosity value which calculation by the mathematical model into the relationship can obtain better timely sediment concentration value. When use the model simulates the time-invariant sediment concentration, the two ways have not many distinctions. It means the way that that use the eddy-viscosity value which calculation by the mathematical model into the relationship is feasible.
