Bottom friction modelling is an important step in river flows computation with 1D or 2D solvers. It is usually performed using empirical laws established for uniform flow conditions or a modern approach based on turbulence analysis. Following the definition of the flow validity field of the main friction laws proposed in the literature, an original continuous formulation has been developed. It is suited to model river flows with a wide range of properties (water depth, discharge, roughness…). The efficiency of this new formulation, theoretically established and numerically adjusted, is demonstrated through various practical applications. [less ▲]

Bottom friction modeling is an important step in river flows computation with 1D or 2D solvers. It is usually performed using empirical laws established for uniform flow conditions or a modern approach based on turbulence analysis. Following the definition of the flow validity field of the main friction laws proposed in the iterature, an original continuous formulation has been developed. It is suited to model river flows with a high variability of properties (water depth, discharge, roughness…). The efficiency of this new formulation, theoretically established and numerically adjusted, is demonstrated through various practical applications. [less ▲]

Piano Key Weirs (PKW) are a new type of weir, showing very good flood release capacities as well as strong economic and structural benefits. However, lacks of understanding persist about the flow conditions on such structures. With the goal to fill some of these lacks, a combined experimental and numerical study has been undertaken at the Laboratory of Structures Hydraulics of the University of Liege. This paper presents the goals and the scientific strategy of this research. The first results of experiments being carried out on a large physical model of PKW are also depicted. These experiments lead to characterization of the flow behavior for low heads and enable to highlight the influence of the crest thickness and the outlet slope on the release capacity. [less ▲]

Dam break flow modelling is a major field of research. In order to enable risk analysis in the downstream valleys of dams, 2D numerical simulations are of prime interest. These are based on the conservative set of shallow water equations. Beyond their numerical implementation, the challenge of the computation relies on the ability to handle very huge sets of high-precision data, in order to get the highest possible accuracy, whereas the computational time must remain realistic for simulations carried out on real valleys topography. In this paper, a simulation on about 2 500 000 cells is presented. Particularly, the results are compared and discussed regarding especially the exploitation of landuse data for the roughness. Beyond the examples of validation, the relevance of the developed methodology appears to be essential in the framework of risk analysis. [less ▲]

A 2D numerical flow model, developed at the Laboratory of Hydrology, Applied Hydrodynamics and Hydraulic Constructions (HACH) at ULg, has been applied to flows in a macro-rough channel using three different approaches to compute the turbulence effects. Both the first and second ones are based on algebraic expressions of the turbulent viscosity, and the third one uses a depth-integrated k- type model involving two additional partial differential equations. Data for the comparison have been provided by experiments conducted at the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions (LCH) at EPFL, showing different two-dimensional flow characteristics in varied configurations of large scale cavities in depressions at the side walls of the flume. Despite the strongly different modeling approaches used in the three models to handle the turbulence effects, the numerical models give generally similar and satisfactory agreement between experimental and numerical results regarding backwater curves.

Within the global framework of the climate change, according to most Regional Climate Mod-els the maximum peak discharges in river will increase in importance and frequency. Therefore the people will have to face worst inundation conditions. In order to protect themselves from the increasing flood risk, the communities have to draw up suitable flood protection measures. The selection and the evaluation among the different possible flood mitigation measures requires developing decision-support system (DSS). This sys-tem has to take into consideration parameters such as hydraulic, economic, social or environmental. This pa-per focuses on the integration between two components of the DSS, namely the evaluation of the economic impacts of floods and the hydrodynamic modelling. The hydraulic simulations are conducted by means of WOLF 2D flow modelling system and provide as an output high resolution flood maps detailing the distribu-tion of water depth and flow velocity in the floodplains. The integration is ensured by the use of very accurate geographic databases and an automated procedure which makes the most of geomatic methods. The paper de-tails the application of the integrated assessment procedure for a case study along the river Ourthe located in the Meuse basin (Belgium). Moreover, possibilities of validation of the economic damage evaluation proce-dure are investigated by comparing computation results with real damage data recorded by the Belgian Disas-ter Fund after several major flood events (2003, 2002, 1995, and 1993).

Within the global framework of climate change, the majority of the regional climatic models (RCM - Regional Climatic Model) predict an increase in the frequency and importance of the rainy events. Therefore, the populations will have to face an increased risk of flooding. In order to draw up suitable protection strategy in this context, decision-making tool must be developed to select the adequate mitigation measure among the whole of the possible protection measures. This system has to take into account parameters such as hydraulic economic, social or environmental. This paper focuses on the integration between the economic evaluation of the undergone damage and the two-dimensional hydrodynamic modelling implemented using the model WOLF 2D. The integration is ensured by the use of pointed geographical information systems and an automated procedure, based on the methods of geomatic, guaranteeing a perfect applicability of methodology for the analysis of urban areas. The whole of methodology is then applied to the evaluation of a measurement of adaptation to Ourthe (basin of the Meuse), namely the rehabilitation of an old channel formerly used to allow the river transport to the river.
