Numerical simulation of rainfall-induced landslides considering hysteresis and scanning soil-water characteristic curves

Kenanoğlu, Melih Birhan
Toker, Nabi Kartal
Infiltration through unsaturated soil is essential issue in the modelling of rainfall-induced landslides, Hysteresis in soil-water characteristic curves complicates the modelling of infiltration. This study aims to establish a numerical model for rainfall infiltration and ultimate limit state stability of an unsaturated infinite slope, while considering the effect of wetting-drying hysteresis.

Numerical Aspects of POD-Based Reduced-Order Modeling forDarcy-Brinkman Equations
Güler Eroğlu, Fatma; Kaya Merdan, Songül (2018-10-21)
We propose, analyze and test a reduced order modelling with proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) method for the modeling to flows governed by double diffusive convection, which models flow driven by two potentials with different rates of diffusion. We present a theoretical analysis of the method and give results for various numerical tests on benchmark problems that will demonstrate both the theory and the effectiveness of the proposed method.
Numerical simulation of groundwater contamination
Ger, M; Baran, Özgür Uğraş; Irfanoglu, B (2000-06-14)
In this study, the finite difference modeling technique is used to develop a simulation program that can be used for groundwater contamination problems. The simulation program is written in C++ programming language and runs on personal computers using Windows 95. The simulation program supplies an interactive user interface containing useful tools for pre-processing and postprocessing the data. Numerical models are capable of simulating two-dimensional areal aquifer systems with various conditions. Finite d...
Effiect of map scale and grid size for hydrological modelling
Usul, Nurunnisa; Pasaogullari, Onur (2003-09-19)
GIS is a very useful tool in modelling the earth surface and defining basin parameters to be used in topography-based hydrological modelling. Grid based Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is used for modelling topography and grid size is the main parameter that will affect the accuracy of DEM directly and hydrological modelling indirectly. The objective of this study was to examine the effect of grid size and map scale on geomorphological basin parameters. The study was conducted on three small research basins i...
Numerical investigation of vortex formation at intake structures using flow-3d software /
Tataroğlu, Rüçhan Müge; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Formation of the vortices in a horizontal water intake structure composed of a reservoir-pipe system is investigated using 3D numerical modeling. The geometrical and hydraulic conditions of the system such as pipe diameters, the distance between the side walls of the intake and the flow discharge is altered and the critical submergence depth required for the formation of the vortex for each test is determined. Although it is possible to capture an air-entraining vortex in the numerical model, there is a dev...
Numerical simulation of scour at the rear side of a coastal revetment
Şentürk, Barış Ufuk; Guler, Hasan Gokhan; Baykal, Cüneyt (2023-05-01)
This paper presents the results of a numerical modeling study on the scouring of unprotected rear side material of a rubble mound coastal revetment due to the overtopping of solitary-like waves utilizing a coupled hydro-morphodynamic computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model. Three cases having various wave heights are tested with six different turbulence models together with different wall functions. The hydrodynamic results (free-surface elevations, overtopping volumes, and jet thicknesses) and morphologic...
