Reduced-order models remain essential tools for meander modeling, especially for processes at large length scales and long time scales, probabilistic simulations, rapid assessments, or when input data are scarce or uncertain. Present reduced-order meander models consider their dependent variables either as small-amplitude variations compared to...

Grain size changes in a river dominated by mixed sediment are the outcome of sedimentary grain sizeselective processes. Progress in the measurement techniques that define the spatial and temporal variation in grain size is necessary to provide new insights in this field. Techniques as image analysis and acoustic methods have emerged in the last...

At high water stages obstacles in the flood plains of a river contribute to the flow resistance and hamper the conveyance capacity. In particular the elevated vegetated parts are expected to play an important role. The objective of this research work is to determine the form drag due to vegetated oblique weir-like obstacles. The experiments have...

Wide crested dike can reduce the kinetic energy of the overtopping wave and make the overtopping wave to flow back to the seaside. If a coastal town were built on or near a dike, the overtopping wave running on the dike crest generates the force which can affect the buildings located in its path. However, quantifying the hydrodynamic load on the...

Migrating alternate bars form in alluvial channels as a result of morphodynamic instability. Extensive literature can be found on their origin and short-term development, but their long-term evolution has been poorly studied so far. In particular, it is not clear whether migrating bars eventually reach a (dynamic) equilibrium, as in previous...

At high water stages obstacles in the floodplains of a river contribute to the flow resistance. In particular the elevated vegetated parts are expected to play an important role.

Migrating alternate bars form in alluvial channels as a result of morphodynamic instability. Extensive literature can be found on their origin and short-term development, but their long-term evolution has been poorly studied so far. In particular, it is not clear whether they eventually reach an equilibrium shape, since short-term experiments...

Meandering rivers and streams are a common planform in the world’s populated areas. Furthermore the recent increased focus on renaturalization projects has lead policy makers to also consider the partial remeandering of previously trained rivers. Economic factors such as navigation, man-made infrastructure and valuable farm land set the boundary...

Shallow shear flows play an important role in the transverse transport of mass and momentum in rivers. In order to understand structure of the flow and the mechanism resulting in the particular turbulence properties, three types of shallow mixing layers are investigated each with a different cause for the velocity difference: inflow conditions,...

Wood transport in rivers, typically occurring during flood events, represents a relevant hazard for its potential to create obstruction at bridges and narrow cross-sections. Therefore, the understanding and prediction of entrainment and transport dynamics of woody material of different shapes, density and dimensions is of great interest for...

Alternate bars in straight alluvial channels are migrating or nonmigrating. The currently accepted view is that they are nonmigrating if the width-to-depth ratio is at the value of resonance or if the bars are forced by a persistent local perturbation. We carried out 2-D numerical computations and a long-duration mobile-bed flume experiment to...

Research on lateral exchange of streamwise momentum between parallel flows in open channels has mainly been focused on compound channels composed of a main channel and a floodplain, on mixing layer development downstream of river confluences, and on partially vegetated channels. This study aims to establish the mechanisms responsible for...

The current view is that migrating bars are the result of morphodynamic instability in straight or mildly-sinuous alluvial channels and are therefore an inevitable feature of alluvial river beds. Steady bars, instead, require some external forcing or specific morphodynamic conditions to develop. Yet, recent numerical tests showed that steady...
