Large eddy simulation of open channel flows for conveyance estimation
Beaman, Faye (2010) Large eddy simulation of open channel flows for conveyance estimation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Prediction of conveyance capacity in open channel flows is complex and requires adequate modelling of flow features such as secondary circulation cells and, specifically for over-bank channels, the momentum exchange that occurs at the main channel/floodplain interface. A variety of conveyance estimation methods have been developed with the objective of accurately capturing these flow characteristics through a simplified user-friendly approach. However, these methods usually require calibration of one or more empirical constants.
