Modelling Rivers

River

Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Hello, i need to simulate river erosion where the median sediment diameter (D50) is 0,014 meters. I know that the maximum available is 0,002 meter for non-cohesive sediment. Can i change that?

Hi Eduardo,

If you edit the *.sed file in a text editor you can set sediment sizes larger than 0.002m (this limit only applies in the GUI). I have been successfully simulating sizes up to 0.2m.

Cheers,

Richard

Thanks Richard. I tried and it was without problems!

Hey,

hope I can renew the discussion.
I have a question concerning the sediment diameter.

I have grain size distribution from the sediment and want to split it up in a silt/cohesive and a sand/non-cohesive fraction.
Should I use the d_50 of my whole distribution or just from my sand fractrion part (what seems more logical to me).

Would be quite helpful to get some tips and learn from your experience.

Thanks
Manuela

The pebble count procedure, widely used among geomorphol-ogists, can be adapted for use in fishery studies to determine surface bed material size distributions. At least 100 randomly selected bed particles are measured and a size distribution curve is developed for each distinct population on the streambed PrepaidGiftBalance
