Approximately 20 square kilometers of wetland facilities are proposed to be installed within the Yolo Bypass of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project. A hydraulic impact investigation...

Simulation of River Bed Evolution Below Tsengwen Reservoir in Taiwan
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...

On the Applicable Ranges of Kinematic and Diffusion Models in Open Channels
The kinematic and diffusion models using simplified momentum equations of the full dynamic equation have been frequently used for numerical flow simulations, because they have several...

Simulating THM Precursors Transport with DWRDSM
A study was conducted by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) to demonstrate the ability of its Delta Simulation Model (DWRDSM) to simulate fate and movement of inorganic...

A Study of Lateral Bed Slopes Developed at Bend
A study was conducted to compare seven actual cross section profiles of Philip Bayou Realignment with the lateral bed slopes estimated from the model derived by Ikeda titled `Sediment...

Nonuniform Transient Sediment Transport Modeling
A numerical model based on Lai's (1991) multimode scheme for fully coupled simulation of water and sediment movement in mobile-bed alluvial channels with nonuniform bed materials has been...

A Model for Vertical Transport at a Sheared Density Interface
A physically based model for vertical mixing and transport at a sheared density interface is presented, based on high-resolution measurements from laboratory experiments. It is found that...

Mixing Characteristics of a Transitional Stratified Two-Layer Flow
Small scale structures in a stably stratified two-layer flow are investigated. The flow configuration has the initial velocity interface displaced with respect to the density interface....

Numerical Solution of Transient Closed-Conduit Flow Equations by the Method of Lines Along Characteristics
The method of characteristics has long been considered as a natural technique for solving transient closed-conduit problems. In this paper, by using the concept of the method of lines,...

A Mathematical Model of Flow in Mildly Sinuous, Deep Channels
A mathematical study of flow in deep, weakly-meandering channels has been carried out and formulations for the tangential and radial velocities, valid in conditions have been developed....

Prediction of Filtrate Turbidity by Parameter Estimation
In order to operate the rapid sand filter in response to the time variation of effluent quality, a model and a procedure to predict the filtrate quality of rapid sand filters have been...

Limitations of Reduced Scale Testing on Parshall Flumes
A model for the boundary layer development in the entrance section of a Parshall flume is developed to account for the effects of fluid viscosity on flume calibration equations. Data for...

A Comparison Between Two Kinematic Wave Solutions for Movement of Debris Flows
We compare an asymptotic kinematic wave solution for movement of debris flows with a solution obtained by the method of characteristics. The differences between the two solutions in the...
