Hydraulic and sediment transport modeling for Cache Creek Settling Basin, Woodland California

Carr, K.J.

Kavvas, M.L.
The Cache Creek Settling Basin is located two miles east of Woodland, California and was constructed to preserve the floodway capacity of the Yolo Bypass by entrapping sediment. Cache Creek is the main source of mercury entering the San Francisco Bay-Delta. Entrapping sediment helps to entrap mercury thus acting to protect the aquatic life of the San Francisco Bay-Delta. A 2-dimensional hydraulic and sediment transport model is under development. The model modules for sediment transport and hydrodynamic modeling will be coupled under historical flow conditions. Preliminary results are presented herein. © 2010 ASCE.

Determination and control of longshore sediment transport: A case study
Ari, H. Anil; Yuksel, Yalcin; Cevik, Esin Ozkan; Güler, Işıkhan; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Bayram, Bulent (2007-02-01)
The fishery harbor of Karaburun coastal village is located at the south west coast of the Black Sea. The significant waves coming from north eastern direction cause considerable rate of sediment transport along 4 km sandy beach towards the fishery harbor in the region. The resulting sediment deposition near and inside the harbor entrance prevents the boat traffic and cause a vital problem for the harbor operations. In order to determine the level and reasons of the sediment transport, the long-term observat...
Numerical investigation of hydraulic characteristics of Laleli Dam spillway and comparison with physical model study
Usta, Eray; Köken, Mete; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Spillway is a hydraulic structure that is used to pass big discharges in flood times in a controlled manner and release surplus water that cannot be safely stored in the reservoir to downstream. During the design process of the spillways, determining of hydraulic behavior of these structures is a very significant issue for an accurate and optimum design. In this thesis, the objective is to investigate the hydraulic characteristics of the flow over Laleli dam spillway numerically and compare the results with...
Studies in architecture and reconstruction of udabno III-house D
Yarma, Özgecan; Bertram, Jan Krzysztof; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2009)
The Udabno Project is an archaeological fieldwork in Eastern Georgia which includes three settlements from ca. 11th \10th century BC (Udabno I, II and III). The project aims to provide information about the settlement of this period of time. Extensive surveys including geomagnetic prospection took place before the excavations and these are all reveal proto-urban settlement structures. In this project, one of the most important investigations is the pit dwellings, which are located in the middle of the settl...
Estimation of diffuse pollution loads of pesticides in tersakan sub-basin of Yeşilirmak river
Ayyıldız, Ceren; Ünlü, Kahraman; Department of Environmental Engineering (2019)
Tersakan Creek is one of the highly polluted tributaries of Yeşilırmak River because it receives pollution loads both from discharges of the industrial facilities and run-off water of the agricultural areas in the sub-basin. A monitoring program was implemented to determine the water quality status of the sub-basin in accordance with the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). The results of the water sample analyses revealed that concentrations of 22 pesticides, out of the detected 57 pesticides, exceeded the ...
Assessment of the effects of multiple extreme floods on flow and transport processes under competing flood protection and environmental management strategies
Tu, Tongbi; Carr, Kara J.; Ercan, Ali; Trinh, Toan; Kavvas, M. Levent; Nosacka, John (2017-12-01)
Extreme floods are regarded as one of the most catastrophic natural hazards and can result in significant morphological changes induced by pronounced sediment erosion and deposition processes over the landscape. However, the effects of extreme floods of different return intervals on the floodplain and river channelmorphological evolution with the associated sediment transport processes are not well explored. Furthermore, different basin management action plans, such as engineering structure modifications, m...
