Two-dimensional hydrodynamic modeling capability has greatly impacted the hydraulics community and significantly altered the approaches to design and analysis of open channel systems. Two-dimensional modeling has the potential for eliminating over simplified assumptions associated with one-dimensional modeling. In some cases it may negate the need for physical model studies. Five case studies that employed two-dimensional hydrodynamic methods are presented.
