Modeling of Maximum Velocity in Open-Channel Flow
A great deal of information about an open channel flow is contained in the maximum velocity, which, along with the entropy parameter, can determine the mean velocity. Therefore, the maximum...

Design Considerations for Use of Wedge Wire Screens at Surface Water Intake Structures
This paper provides the suggested guidelines for design, construction, operation and maintenance of wedge-shaped wire cylindrical screens used for aquatic biota and trash and debris screening...

Analysis of the Torrent Lava Flow Movement and Its Computations - One Example Applied Investigation of Disastrous Torrent Flood
To compute torrent lava flow is hardly an easy task. Most often it has to be determined on the basis of flood traces. In the case of phenomenon discussed, it was the only possible way...

A New Formula for Mean Velocity in Torrents
In this paper we present a new equation for mean velocity in torrents based on travel time measurements and geomorphological relations. Here, the emphasis is not on understanding the physical...

An Alternative Equation for the Mean Velocity in Gravel-Bed Rivers and Mountain Torrents
Including new field data in the slope range of torrents up to 63%, an empirical equation is developed to express the mean flow velocity in terms of the flow rate, the slope and a characteristic...

At-A-Site Mountain River Flow Resistance Variation
At-a-site variation in flow resistance is examined in the light of observations of an S-shaped velocity profile at relative submergences (d/D84)...

Step-Pool Streams: An Adjustment to Maximum Flow Resistance
An experiment was conducted to study the maximum flow resistance of step pool streams and the morphology of the steps formed from clastic materials. The step pool formation was qualitatively...

A Mechanism of Pool Formation and Maintenance in Forest Streams
Laboratory and field investigations illustrate a hydraulic mechanism responsible for the formation and maintenance of pools associated with large, in-channel obstructions in forest streams....

Hydraulics and Sediment Transport Processes in a Pool-Riffle Rocky Mountain Stream
Sediment transport processes related to varying channel-bed morphology were investigated from April to November, 1993 along a 1 km pool-riffle and step-pool reach of North Saint Vrain...

On Habitat Simulation in Mountain Rivers
Mountain rivers are quite different from other rivers and one of the characteristics that distinguish them from others is the large variation in velocities with time, with location in...

Velocity Control Rings for RC Pipe on Steep Slopes
This paper discusses the use of internal concrete rings to reduce velocity and concrete erosion for reinforced concrete pipes on steep slopes in the Southern California area....

Luo, Ming
The algebraic stress model of turbulence is employed to calculate the 2-D flow field of the Gongzhui reservoir region. The discharge distribution among the discharging structures is achieved...

Reservoir Sediment Removal: Hydrosuction Dredging
Hydrosuction dredging is a relatively little-known method of removing sediment deposits from reservoirs. The method is similar to traditional hydraulic dredging except the difference between...

Relation of Unit Gravel Discharge to Mean Velocity
In sand-bed streams, the unit discharge of sand varies approximately with the fifth power of the mean velocity and inversely with the median diameter of the bed sediment. Similar relations...

Carpet Flow Analysis
Under very high flow conditions, sediment may be transported either in a suspension or by carpet flow, as defined by Bagnold. This study examines the theoretical conditions for carpet...

Sandbar Formation in Side-Diversion Channels
Prediction of sandbar formation in side-diversion channels is desirable in a wide range of river engineering problems. However, the mechanism by which they form is still not well understood...

Free-Surface Instability in Flow down Steep Rivers

Theoretical study of unstable waves in the rapids of the river
This paper examines how the velocity distribution in free-surface flow affects the kinematic and dynamic velocities of disturbance waves on hillslopes or in high-gradient rivers, thereby...

Numerical Analysis of High Velocity Flow with Zero-Depth Line and Oblique Shock Wave in Steep Open-Channels
This paper deals with the numerical analysis of 2D steady high velocity flows with the zero - depth line and the oblique shock wave in steep open channels by means of the method of characteristics....

Considerations in 2-D Modeling of Hydraulically Steep Flow
Simplifications in the equations used to describe shallow water flow lead to some difficulties in modeling supercritical flow. The hydrostatic assumption produces two significant differences...
