River vegetation is increasingly interesting to
engineers and vegetation effects on flow structure
are pressing for understanding. Little has been done
on the one-line vegetation at the floodplain edge
and submerged vegetation on the floodplain. This book
reveals the flow characteristics of compound
channels with such floodplain vegetation. The
vegetation effects on the distributions of velocity
and boundary shear stress, turbulence shear and
secondary currents were revealed using various
measurement and analysis techniques. Unsteady flow
characteristics in vegetated channels were
numerically captured with Large Eddy Simulation
technique. Methods of estimating the drag force and
stage-discharge were proposed for vegetated compound
channels. Quasi-2D model was developed to predict
the 2D vegetated flow structures by introducing new
concepts to consider the vegetation drag. This book
will be very useful to professionals in hydraulic,
civil and environmental engineering and also be an
excellent reference source for students in these
disciplines.
