1-D and 2-D flood modeling studies and upstream structural measures for Samsun city Terme district

Bozoğlu, Başar
In this study, Samsun City Terme District flood problem is examined with 1-D and 2-D flood modeling approach. In July 2012 Terme City Centre was exposed to a flood event. Approximately 510 m³/s flood discharge passed through the city. The river water level reachedtop of the levees and some parts were overflowed. The area is exposed to flooding as ifthe other urban areas located in Black Sea Region. The possible causes and effects of the flood problem on the Terme District are examined and some upstream structural measures are presented. MIKE by DHI (Danish Hydraulic Institute) software isused for the computer based flood modeling. MIKE 11 isselected for one-dimensionalhydraulic modeling and MIKE 21 isselected for two-dimensional flood modeling.The flood models are studied from City of Terme entrance (Terme Bridge) to the upstream Salıpazarı region of the river (Salıpazarı Bridge). The studies show that the meanders on the upstream part of the Terme River help in routing and attenuating the discharge especially in flood events. vi The capacity of the stream channel cannot be increased by increasing the width of the stream channel, because of the urbanization problem, therefore upstream structural measures are studied on scenario basis. Four sub catchments of Terme River are considered, in each scenario as contributing the downstream flooding. Model studies with various discharge hydrographs are carried on for different scenarios including both existing situation and possible projected situations.


2-dimensional flood control simulations for Wami and Düden rivers
Karakuş, Uğur Can; Bozkuş, Zafer; Department of Civil Engineering (2019)
In this study, flood scenarios of bridge sections of Wami and Düden Rivers are examined with 2D flood modelling. HEC-RAS 2D software is used for the flood simulations. The bridge locations are investigated to protect against hazardous floods expected in the regions. For Wami Bridge, three scenarios are examined; existing case (where only the operated bridge is modelled), design case (where the newly designed bridge is added) and modified design case (where channel modification is introduced with both bridge...
Situational analysis of flood and drought in Rwanda
Asumadu-Sarkodie, Samuel; Rufangura, Patrick; Jayaweera, MPC Herath; Owusu, Phebe Asantewaa (2017-6-19)
In this paper, a situational analysis of flood and drought in Rwanda were assessed using AQUEDUCT Global Flood Analyzer based on the population, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and urban damage for current and future projections (2030). In order to estimate future changes, three scenarios from: Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) and Shared Socio-economic Pathways (SSP) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 5th Assessment Report which represents climate change and socioeconomic change scen...
Depth integrated equations applied to longitudinal discontinuities on the channel bed
Razmand, Maral; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Depth integrated equations can be solved over large domains to provide flood inundation maps. In urban and rural areas however, there may be numerous natural or artificial bottom boundary discontinuities in the form of rapid variations in the bed elevation. Such discontinuities cause abrupt changes in the source terms of the governing equations and can significantly affect stability and accuracy of the numerical solution. A 1D code is developed for shallow water equations using HLL approximate Riemann solve...
A Study on flood management practices for Güzelyurt
Şahin, Erdal; Yanmaz, A Melih; Akıntuğ, Bertuğ; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
This study deals with the investigation of characteristics of a flash flood and development of design of flood mitigation facilities occurred in Güzelyurt in North Cyprus on 18th of January, 2010 and development of design of flood mitigation facilities. Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling of this flood event has been utilized to develop solutions for preventing the region from the flood. Topographical maps and soil properties are used in hydrological modeling. The data are inserted into a geographical informa...
Comparison of physical and numerical dam-break simulations
Bozkuş, Zafer (Turkiye Bilimsel ve Teknik Arastirma Kurumu, 1998-01-01)
Laboratory data obtained from model studies of an existing dam under three different failure scenarios are presented. Moreover, the numerical failure simulations of the same dam were performed by employing two state-of-the-art numerical models, namely, SMPDBK and DAMBRK, both developed at the National Weather Service (NWS) in the United States. Comparison of the measured and computed results indicate that both numerical models predict peak flood elevation with somewhat reasonable accuracy. However, the resu...
