Can Delft3d-flow be used to simulate the flow process in flume, 2D or 3D?

Hi there, we conducted a flow experiment  in flume (width=60cm,length=20m, depth=60cm). we plan to simulate the 3d flow process using delft3d because we need to consider sediment transport. However, as delft3d's manual says, the delft3d aims to model flow phenomenon of which the horizontal length and time scales are significantly larger than the vertical. On the other hand, I know that fluent is good at simulating the flow process in flume. would anyone  like to give us some suggestion? 

best regards
