Hydropeaking is a widely applied management practice in the generation of hydropower. When the demand in electricity is high, the operator of a hydropower plant rapidly increases released discharges to meet this demand. Vice versa, when the demand is low, no or less water is released. However, while river regulation practices offer valuable...

With the growing demand for expanding sustainable energy production in the Netherlands, investigating potential renewable energy sources has become imperative. Scheduled replacement projects for weirs along the river Meuse within the next decade present an excellent opportunity to assess the feasibility of integrating hydropower plants into...

Polders water canals are sometimes exposed to brackish seepage from the nearby saline sea (salinization). This is a problem because the canal water is used to irrigate crops. A characteristic of water is that less dense (fresh) water floats on top of dense (saline) water. In lakes and oceans, it is common that water layers with various densities...

Compound weirs are used as flow diversion structures by adding additional flow resistance to the anticipated regions at the rivers. Furthermore, they are used for measuring and regulating flow rates accurately over a wide range of flow depths. When they are used for this purpose, the cross sections are generally selected as symmetrical having...

Compound weirs can be used as flexibly adjustable structures to regulate the flow and the flow distribution over the cross-section. Examples are found in rivers to create additional resistance in one side of the river bifurcations. It is done to distribute the discharge among the branches properly. They are placed at the flood plains and become...

The modelling of complex free surface flows is challenging due to the mobility and deformability of the interface and air entrainment characteristics, which are highly affected by turbulence. With the framework of Reynolds averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) models and the volume of fluid (VOF) method, turbulence quantities at the air–water...

Weirs are constructed inside rivers to manage the water level. On the one hand they need to be designed sufficiently strong to prevent failure or destruction, while on the other hand they need to be economically feasible. If a structure is designed too strong, unnecessary costs are made and the structure becomes too expensive.<br/><br/>One of...

This research aims to explore sediment transport behavior and accumulation caused by run-of-river weirs in order to examine there feasibility for sustainable sediment mining purposes in the White Volta River. Weirs are used to raise water levels up-stream to increase water levels and storage, but their is little information regarding sediment...

The Meuse is a river in West-Europe which rises at the Langres Plateau and flows from France through Belgium and the Netherlands. The river has always been an important shipping route, even though its navigability has been problematic in the Netherlands. To solve this problem seven weirs were constructed in the Dutch part of the Meuse. They are...

The river Waal is part of an economic important transport-corridor that connects the ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam to Germany. Ongoing processes such as (1) climate change, (2) large scale river bed erosion and (3) up-scaling of vessels threaten the future navigability of the river. This will lead to massive economic damages as taken...

At hydraulic structures, some strong interactions may develop between fast flowing waters and the air adjacent to the water in motion that enhance the air-water transfer of atmospheric and volatile gases in the flow. In turn, in-stream structures may contribute to the aeration and re-oxygenation during overflow. The present study aims to...

Two control structures in the form of compound weirs were built near Pannerden and in the Hondsbroeksche Pleij. These compound weirs consist of multiple adjacent gates with individually configurable weir heights. To make optimal use of the flexibility of the structures, research must be done into how different compound weir configurations affect...

Weirs are flow control structures that can be used for flow diversion purposes. They are classified according to section geometry or their length in the flow direction. For sharp-crested rectangular weirs, Rehbock [1] derived stage-discharge equations. In contracted geometries, streamlines curve at the approach flow leading to variations in flow...

In the Meuse seven weirs are located in the Dutch reaches, controlling the water level to enable inland navigation through the river. The weirs are being scheduled for replacement, where weir Grave is the first one in 2028. They are reaching their end-of-life time. One of the main issues that became of more importance in the recent years is ship...

This experimental study is about the bed-load transport over inlet sills of longitudinal training walls. The focus is on the flow structures around the inlet: the shape, the processes and the effect on sediment transport. Groynes have been replaced by longitudinal training walls in an 11-km long pilot project to optimize training of the river...

The weirs in the river Meuse reach their theoretical lifespan. The weirs were built in the early 1930s and now one is faced with a replacement task. Various studies have been carried out in recent years on the future of the weirs in the river Meuse. This concerns research into the entire weir system, different types of weirs and the way in which...

An economical way to harvest tidal energy is by integrating free stream turbines in coastal infrastructure. While numerous studies have investigated how turbines should be arranged in idealized geometries to optimize their performance, only a few have considered the influence of realistic bed features. This research investigates the influence...

In contrast with other Dutch rivers parts, human measures in the upstream part of the River Meuse did not mainly focus on discharging surplus water, but on retaining water in dry periods. Almost 100 years ago seven weirs were constructed in the River Meuse to enable transport of coals. The structures reach, due to concrete degradation, the end...

In submerged conditions groynes add resistance to a river, thereby increasing the water levels for a particular discharge. Groynes are modelled in two ways, either they are included in the bed topography when the grid resolution is sufficiently high or with a sub-grid parametrisation when the grid cell-size is larger than the geometry of the...

On the 29th of December 2016 a large Rhine ship loaded with 2000 ton benzene sailed through the weir at Grave, located in the river Meuse in the Netherlands. The accident created a large gap in the weir and within 12 hours the upstream water level decreased by a maximum of 3 meters. Due to this decreased water level shipping was limited,...
