Shallow water equations are widely used in inundation analysis and they are known to be successful in computation of floods over wide terrains. Flood propagation in between buildings in urban areas and flows around hydraulic structures such as bridges may not satisfy the assumptions of shallow flow and may display markedly more 3-Dimensional (3D) flow characteristics. However, for the convenience of fast numerical solutions, the shallow-current equations can also be used for such 3D flows and useful output may be obtained.


A stochastic approach in reserve estimation
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2006-12-01)
Geostatistics and more especially stochastic modeling of reservoir heterogeneities are being increasingly considered by reservoir analysts and engineers for their potential in generating more accurate reservoir models together with usable measures of spatial uncertainty. Geostatistics provides a probabilistic framework and a toolbox for data analysis with an early integration of information. The uncertainty about the spatial distribution of critical reservoir parameters is modeled and transferred all the wa...
Analytical solution for the propagation of finite crested long waves over a sloping beach
Yağmur, Ahmed Sabri; Kanoğlu, Utku; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-2-10)
The analytical solution of shallow water-wave equations, both linear and nonlinear, is widely used to provide an insightful understanding of the coastal effect of long waves. These solutions are generally carried out for two-dimensional (1 space + 1 time) propagation, even though there are a limited number of analytical solutions for the three-dimensional (2 space + 1 time) propagation. Three-dimensional propagation of long waves over a sloping beach is considered here. The analytical solution is obtained u...
Modelling the Dynamic Response of Pile Foundations in Performance Based Geotechnical Engineering Framework
Unutmaz, Berna; Gülerce, Zeynep (2016-06-26)
The objective of this study is to develop a performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE) framework for the soil liquefaction-related hazards and estimate the levels of exceeding liquefaction related engineering demand parameters (EDPs) in a probabilistic manner. The post-cyclic lateral deformation at the pile head (x) is tried to be predicted from ground motion intensity measures (IMs) such as peak ground acceleration (PGA) and Arias Intensity (I a). Within this scope, a number of finite difference anal...
Evaluating the one way coupling of WRF Hydro for flood forecasting
Yücel, İsmail; Yılmaz, Koray Kamil (null; 2016-04-18)
A fully-distributed, multi-physics, multi-scale hydrologic and hydraulic modeling system, WRF-Hydro, is used to assess the potential for skillful flood forecasting based on precipitation inputs derived from the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and the EUMETSAT Multi-sensor Precipitation Estimates (MPEs). Similar to past studies it was found that WRF model precipitation forecast errors related to model initial conditions are reduced when the three dimensional atmospheric data assimilation (3DVAR)...
Comparison of prognostic and diagnostic surface flux modeling approaches over the Nile River basin
Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Zaitchik, Ben; Hain, Chris R.; Crow, Wade T.; Ozdogan, Mutlu; Chun, Jong Ahn; Evans, Jason (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2014-01-01)
Regional evapotranspiration (ET) can be estimated using diagnostic remote sensing models, generally based on principles of energy balance closure, or with spatially distributed prognostic models that simultaneously balance both energy and water budgets over landscapes using predictive equations for land surface temperature and moisture states. Each modeling approach has complementary advantages and disadvantages, and in combination they can be used to obtain more accurate ET estimates over a variety of land...
