Le modèle MOHICAN (« Modèle hydrologique intégré pour le calcul des crues et l’amplitude des niveaux d’eau ») a été développé conjointement par l’Université de Liège (Laboratoire d’hydrodynamique appliquée, Laboratoire de Géologie de l’Ingénieur et d’Hydrogéologie, Centre d’Etude et de Modélisation de l’environnement) et la Faculté Universitaire des Sciences Agronomiques de Gembloux (Unité d’Hydraulique agricole) pour le compte et avec le support du Ministère de l’Equipement et des Transports, Service d’Etudes Hydrologiques (MET/SETHY) de la Région wallonne. Dans le cadre du projet STATHY visant à établir la cartographie des zones d’inondation en région Wallonne, il était nécessaire de disposer de séries étendues de débits horaires pour chaque sous-bassin versant. Le modèle MOHICAN a été utilisé à la demande du SETHY pour générer ces données sur 14 années (1991 à 2004) pour 3 sous-bassins pour lesquels la Région Wallonne ne disposait pas de données horaires suffisantes : • La Warchenne à Malmédy (+/- 29 km²), • La Wamme à Hargimont (+/- 81 km²), • La Gueule à Sippenaeken (+/- 120 km²).

In the global framework of climate change, hydraulic structures rehabilitation is an up-to-date subject requiring appropriate design and impact studies. In this scope, upgrading the release facilities of dams is an important point since any badly controlled rise of water level in the reservoir leads usually to both up and downstream consequences, often irreversible. Suitable numerical models, coupled with contemporary computational possibilities, allow today engineers to forecast the complex situations induced on real structures by extreme events with increasing representativeness and accuracy. In this field, WOLF software, a process oriented free surface flows computation package completely set up by the HACH team, has proved its efficiency and reliability for years through numerous theoretical, experimental as well as on real structures applications. In this paper, the rehabilitation study of the Nisramont dam (Belgium) is presented. Located on the Ourthe River, a few kilometers upstream of the town of La Roche, this 21-meter high dam came into service in 1958 and was, in a first time, dedicated to be used as a cofferdam during the construction of a downstream larger reservoir of 250 hm³. But this second dam was never built and Nisramont became a definitive reservoir of 3 hm³ assuming the drinking water supply of a large part of the population of the south of Belgium and producing hydro-electricity. Due to its temporary primary tasks, the stilling basin downstream of the three 12.5 m large notches of the crest spillway has been designed for a short time use. Similarly, the 3 bottom outlets have never been equipped with valves and are thus unusable for the reservoir management. In order to secure the structure and to make it comply with its definitive working objectives, while taking into account climate change observations, the Ministère wallon de l’Equipement et des Transport (MET) - Direction des barrages de l’Est (D. 241) entrusted the HACH with evaluating up to date critical flood discharges and with designing a system in accord with these new values for the rehabilitation of the bottom outlets and the evacuation of the floods to the downstream river. This study has mainly been carried out using software of the WOLF package, successively applied to model really observed extreme events on the structure, to define new peak flow discharge and to design the stilling basin.

The present paper first describes briefly the hydrodynamic model WOLF 2D. Secondly, the simulation of the Malpasset dam break enables to highlight the effectiveness of WOLF 2D. Lastly, the model is applied to simulate the flood generated by the hypothetic collapse of a large concrete dam, which would induce three dam breaks in cascade. [less ▲]

The main objective of the present paper is a description of two effective numerical 2D models to be used as strategic tools in the process of flood risks assessment and mitigation. The first one is a model for hydrodynamics simplified according to the diffusive assumption while the second one is a complete model based on the shallow water equations. Each of them is solved with an efficient numerical technique (including implicit time integration schemes and GMRES linear solvers) maximizing the convergence rate towards a steady state. A practical case study, for which a high resolution Digital Elevation Model exists, will be presented. The study shows the consequences on structures of a new construction in the floodplain in terms of inundation and erosion. [less ▲]

In the field of hydraulic engineering, the size of the simulations is one of the current challenges to model with precision the large areas involved by practical engineers applications. In this scope, the linking in the same modelization of different solvers, each one used in the part of the simulation where its fundamental characteristics are most suitable, open the door to still unreached modelling possibilities. WOLF software includes a series of numerical tools for simulating a wide range of free surface flows and transport phenomena. This paper presents the coupling of the 1D and 2D multiblock finite volume models of WOLF to simulate in a unified way large river reaches (in 1D) with a very fine computation of local areas (in 2D). An application to the simulation of the propagation of the waves following the filling and emptying operations of a large locks system on a several kilometres long reach of the river Meuse (Belgium) is presented.

Wolf software is a set of coupled numerical tools developed for almost ten years for simulating a wide range of free surface flows and transport phenomena. In the scope of new applications in hydraulic structure design and fluid-structure interaction, additional developments have been implemented in the finite volume 2D model to deal with boundaries not aligned along axis or with moving structures. The cut cell based approach, simpler than other classical methods, is based on the division with a sub-grid of the initial Cartesian meshes. While keeping the advantages of regular grids in terms of simplicity, accuracy and storage capacity, it enables to compute instantaneous effects of a structure movement on the fluid or to deal with complex boundaries inclined compared to mesh axis. Several test cases are presented, as well as an applica-tion of the enhanced model, coupled with a 1D one, to the computation of the hydrodynamic fields induced by a lock-door movement. [less ▲]

In the global framework of river management, sedimentation problems in dam reservoirs and adjacent structures are multiple and of major interest for designers as well as dam owners or managers. Before dam construction, these problems can be assessed by several techniques. In this paper, the experimental and numerical sedimentation studies realized at the Laboratory of Applied Hydrodynamics and Hydraulic Constructions (HACH) of the University of Liège on a large hydropower plant project in India are presented. Three main issues related to sedimentation problems are analyzed in details. [less ▲]

Secondly, the simulation of the flood induced by the Malpasset dam break enables to highlight the effectiveness of WOLF 2D. Lastly, the model is applied to demonstrate the key advantages of the most contemporary approach for reproducing the effect of buildings on the flow behaviour.
