Numerical simulation of flood wave propagation in two-dimensions in densely populated urban areas due to dam break
Dams are important structures having many functions such as water supply, flood control, hydroelectric power and recreation. Although dam break failures are very rare events, dams can fail with little warning and the damage ...
Calculation of the time-varying mean velocity by different methods and determination of the turbulence intensities
(Academic Journals, 2010)
The raw velocity data for both stream-wise and transversal directions in unsteady flows, which are formed by generating input hydrograph, are obtained by using a flow tracker. The same hydrograph is generated 15 times and ...
Two-dimensional numerical modeling of flood wave propagation in an urban area due to Ürkmez dam-break, İzmir, Turkey
This study investigated flood inundation in an urban area due to a possible failure of Ürkmez Dam in İzmir, Turkey. The estimation of flood hydrograph upon partial failure of the dam and routing of the flood hydrograph ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of bed-load transport under unsteady flows
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2011-11)
The dynamic behavior of bed-load sediment transport under unsteady flow conditions is experimentally and numerically investigated. A series of experiments are conducted in a rectangular flume (18 m in length, 0.80 m in ...
Distorted physical model to study sudden partial dam break flows in an urban area
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2014-11)
A distorted physical model, based on Ürkmez Dam in Izmir, Turkey, was built to study sudden partial dam break flows. The distorted model had a horizontal scale of 1/150 and a vertical scale of 1/30, containing dam reservoir, ...
