The migration rate of sharp meander bends exhibits large variance and indicates that some sharply curved bends tend to stabilize. These observations remain unexplained. This paper examines three hydrodynamic processes in sharp bends with fixed banks and discusses their morphological implications: secondary flow saturation, outer-banks cells, and...

Siers, J. (author)
In een rivierbocht treedt een zogenaamde spiraalstroming op, waardoor het typische dwarsprofiel van een rivierbocht ontstaat: diep in de buitenbocht en ondiep in de binnenbocht. Hierdoor is slechts over een kleine breedte voldoende vaardiepte aanwezig en vormen bochten in de Waal een knelpunt in de rivier voor de scheepvaart. In het Waalproject...

The flow in a river bend has a large influence on the cross-sectional profile of the bend. Due to the curvature of the bend a secondary flow, which is perpendicular to the main flow, occurs. The secondary flow is directed outwards in the upper part of the cross-section and inwards in the lower part of the cross-section. It causes by means of the...

De rivier de Waal is de belangrijkste scheepvaartroute van Nederland en de drukst bevaren rivier van West-Europa. Ongeveer een derde van de totale import van Duitsland komt binnen via de Waal. De huidige problemen op de Waal hebben te maken met beperkingen in de afmetingen van de vaargeul. Maatgevend zijn de beschikbare breedte en diepte bij...

Olesen, K.W. (author)
A two-dimensional horizontal mathematical model of the flow and bed topography in alluvial channel bends is presented. The applicability of the model is restricted to channels of which the width-depth ratio is large, the Froude number is small, bed load is dominant and grain sorting effects are negligible. First order analyses of the...

The principal features of the numerical model developed herein for calculation of flow and sediment-transport distributions in alluvial-river bends may be summarized as follows: i. The secondary-flow strength and the bed topography are uncoupled from the calculation of distributions of lateral shift velocity and streamwise velocity. This is...

The mathematical model presented describes the flow in rivers of which: i the depth is small compared with the width, ii the width is small compared with the radius of curvature, iii the horizontal length scale of the bottom variations is of the order of magnitude of the width. Within these limits, the channel alignment can be arbitrary and it...

This report describes an extensive experiment on steady turbulent flow in a rather sharply curved U-shaped flume with a shallow rectangular cross-section, under almost the same conditions as earlier, less extensive measurements in the same flume. The experiment was carried out as a part of a research project aiming at a mathematical model of the...

A mathematical model of steady, fully developed laminar flow in curved ducts is developed and used to derive a simplified computation method to be applied in another mathematical model predicting the flow in river bends. The laminar flow model is verified by comparing its results with analytical, numerical and experimental results reported in...

The axisymmetrical, viscous flow in curved channels is considered in the case where the hydraulic radius of the cross-section is small with respect to the average radius of curvature of the bend. First Ananyan's theory on this subject is reconsidered, using a regular perturbation method. The results are applied to a specific channel with a...
