Numerical simulation of experiments in a meandering flume

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

Numerical modelling of the flow in a meandering channel is compared with experiments done by one of the authors. A peculiar 2DH model, where bottom shear stresses are computed taking into account also accelerations, has been developed for the comparison. Good results are obtained in some sections of the channel, but, in others, some experimentally observed flow features are not well reproduced. An explanation is offered for the difficulties encountered in modelling the strong secondary current that appears along the bend.
