Known discharge uncoupled sediment routing
MetadataShow full item record
A known discharge, uncoupled, sediment routing model, KUWASER has been developed. The model sequentially solves the steady flow and sediment continuity equations. This procedure allows for efficient solution of sediment routing problems on large river systems. The model can perform backwater calculations and sediment routing in main stem and multiple tributaries including divided flow reaches. The user can determine river response to river management practices such as channel improvement, realignment, dredging or tributary modifications. The model was tested against two other models, a stage-discharge ...
