Large-scale floodplain modelling

Auteur :
GEE, D. M.

Description :
A two-dimensional horizontal finite element numerical model (RMA-2) is applied to a 24 km river channel-floodplain reach in West Germany. Initial results indicate that finite element schemes may successfully estimate inundation in large-scale floodplain applications. Potentially, the resulting detailed velocity vector distributions and identification of inundation zones throughout storm events could provide an insight into the present day sedimentary environment on the floodplain.
