Abstract:

An uncoupled, one-dimensional river model, capable of simulating bed evolution, hydraulic sorting and armoring under unsteady flow conditions is presented in this paper. This unsteady flow over heterogeneous bed model (UFOHEB) was applied to predict the variations of bed level and armor-layer grain size distribution of along the Tsengwen River downstream of Tsengwen Dam. The simulated results showed fair agreement with observed data.
