Includes numerical methods for open-channel flows, such as SIMPLE algorithms on staggered and non-staggered grids, projection method, and stream function and vorticity method. This text on fundamentals of modeling flow and sediment transport in rivers treats both the physical principles and numerical methods for various degrees of complexity.
'This book is a brand new addition to the sparse literature on computational river dynamics. It covers a very important subject: the numerical modeling of fluvial processes including turbulent flows in rivers, sediment transport, and the deformation of alluvial channels. This book is very welcome as it provides a worthy synthesis of knowledge in one of the fast growing fields of hydraulic engineering.' 'With his background from China, studies in Europe, and practice in the United States, the author presents this subject from a unique international perspective.' Pierre Y. Julien in JOURNAL OF HYDRAULIC ENGINEERING A(c) ASCE. October 2008 '! the present book is to my knowledge a unique resource for engineers and scientists interested in numerical modeling of flow and sediment transport in alluvial channels.' George S. Constantinescu in JOURNAL OF HYDRAULIC RESEARCH vol. 46, no. 6 (2008) 'This book is one of the first to present a complete picture of the physical principles and numerical methods used in computational river dynamics.'
