2-dimensional flood control simulations for Wami and Düden rivers

Karakuş, Uğur Can
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 bridges). For Düden Bridge, existing case (where the historical bridge with insufficient openings) and modified case (where an adjoint bypass channel sharing the flood discharge) are simulated. In the analyzes, instead of 1D modelling, 2D modelling is preferred because of the flat topographic characteristics of the regions, absence of defined riverbed and parallel channels with different slope profiles. For Wami Bridge, using trapezoidal channelization with 15-m width and 2-m depth, the water height at the designed bridge is lowered to 1.45 m and the discharge capacity is increased to 100.74 m3/s while the discharge capacity of the existing bridge is increased from 20.40 m3/s to 100.63 m3/s. For Düden Bridge, using a rectangular by-pass channel, the water height at the historical bridge is lowered to 3.40 m, at which the historical bridge will enable the passage of QDüden = 110.69 m3/s and the bypass channel will carry the rest of the flood, that is, Qbypass = 141.19 m3/s. As a result, the flood control alternatives with hydraulically appropriate solutions were identified for both cases.


1-D and 2-D flood modeling studies and upstream structural measures for Samsun city Terme district
Bozoğlu, Başar; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
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 stru...
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...
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...

In this study, the dam-break analysis of Ondokuz Mayıs Dam, İhsaniye Dam, and Avcıdere Dam is performed using full momentum HEC-RAS and dynamic wave FLO-2D model. The breach hydrograph for each dam was obtained by modeling the reservoir with dynamic wave routing in HEC-RAS. Three breach hydrographs (S1, S2, and S3) were calculated for each dam using a different set of breach parameters. The breach hydrographs were routed over the floodplain using both HEC-RAS and FLO-2D models. For Ondokuz Mayıs Dam, an acc...
Seismic Performance Evaluation of Concrete Gravity Dams by Using Pseudo Dynamic Testing and Simulations
Aldemir, Alper; Binici, Barış (null; 2017-11-24)
Dams are one of the mostimportantinfrastructure components servingfor water storage and energyproduction.Experimental studies on the seismic response of concrete gravity dams are scarce due to the complications regarding thelargescaleof dams and their interaction with the reservoir. This study presents the results of recent novel pseudo-dynamic dam tests (PSD) along with the nonlinear finite element simulations of the specimens. The test specimens were 1/75 scaled version of the highest ...
