This research presents the measurement of boundary shear stress around the base of some elliptical shaped bridge piers using Preston tube technique. The uniform flow was established and a series of measurements having different discharges and channel bed slopes were undertaken. General results are established and then the effects of flow separation on the hydraulic theory are assessed. The Analysis of results shows that behind the bridge piers (horseshoe area); the amount of boundary shear…

Local and Global Friction Factor in a Channel with V-Shaped Bottom
This paper presents an experimental research on the distribution of local friction factor, fb, and global friction factor, f, over the cross-section of a channel with V-shaped bottom, which typically
CFD modelling approach for dam break flow studies
Abstract. This paper presents numerical simulations of free surface flows induced by a dam break comparing the shallow water approach to fully three-dimensional simulations. The latter are based on
Flow behavior in Non-Prismatic Convergent Compound Channel with Submerged Vegetation on Floodplains
Introduction: Vegetation in compound channels by increasing factors such as roughness in the floodplains rather than main channel, velocity difference and momentum exchange between the sub sections,
Three-dimensional simulation of dam break flows
A three-dimensional numerical model of free-surface hydrodynamical flows is presented for application to dam break simulations. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are satisfied in the water

Positive and negative surges are generally observed in open channels. Positive surges that occur due to tidal origins are referred to as tidal bores. A positive surge occurs when a sudden change in
On the modeling and simulation of non-hydrostatic dam break flows
TLDR
The numerical results obtained for a variety of benchmark problems show the validity of the numerical approach, in comparison with other numerical models, and allow to investigate numerically the non-hydrostatic three-dimensional effects, in particular for the usual test cases where hydrostatic approximations are known analytically.

Mean streamwise vorticity in turbulent flow is shown to arise both from mean flow skewing and from the inhomogeneity of anisotropic wall turbulence. The structure of the Reynolds stress tensor is
