2-D Particle Tracking to Determine Transport Characteristics in Rivers with Dead Zones

  title={2-D Particle Tracking to Determine Transport Characteristics in Rivers with Dead Zones},
  author={Volker Weitbrecht and W. S. J. Uijttewaal and Gerhard H. Jirka},
A Lagrangian-Particle-Tracking-Method (LPTM) has been developed to determine the influence of dead water zones on the transport characteristics in natural rivers. Hereby, the local processes at single dead water zones have been investigated with the help of laboratory experiments. The resulting information, such as storage time, velocity distribution, and distribution of the diffusivity has been implemented into the LPTM. The method has been tested by comparing the results of the simulation… CONTINUE READING
