Flooding in a river is a complex phenomenon which affects the livelihood and economic condition of the region. During flooding flow overtops the river course and spreads around the flood plain resulting in a two-course compound channel. It has been observed that the flow velocity in the flood plain is slower than that in the actual river course. This can produce a large shear layer between sections of the flow and produces turbulent structures which generate extra resistance and uncertainty in… CONTINUE READING
